The tabernacle that was stolen earlier this week from the St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral in St. Catharines, Ontario was recovered on Wednesday, September 9.
A group of parishioners from the cathedral discovered the tabernacle in Centennial Park, which is located near the cathedral. The tabernacle was partially submerged in a canal, and parts of the ciborium were missing.
According to local media, the Eucharist was not found in the tabernacle, but because it was in a body of water, it may have dissolved.
A host that is dissolved ceases to be a consecrated host.
