Bridgeport, Conn., Jan 5, 2019 / 18:22 pm America/Denver (CNA).
The Bishop of Bridgeport condemned anti-Semitism Saturday, after a swastika was found painted on the doors of Bridgeport’s cathedral.
“I am appalled and outraged by this act of vandalism against the Mother Church of our Diocese and this brazen and disgusting display of anti-Semitism which is morally abhorrent and an affront to our Catholic faith,” Bishop Frank Caggiano said in a statement Jan. 5.
“To use a clearly anti-Semitic symbol is participating in unspeakable evil.”
The swastika was found painted on the doors of St. Augustine’s Cathedral on the morning of Jan. 4. Caggiano said that because he is on retreat, he had only learned of the vandalism Saturday afternoon.
Bridgeport police have not yet named a suspect in the crime, Caggiano said.
