The Knights of Columbus has contributed thousands of dollars to a Brooklyn parish following an act of vandalism earlier this month.
The Knights of Columbus announced Sept. 21 a $10,000 donation to Our Lady of Solace Church. An unknown perpetrator destroyed a statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe at the parish Sept. 11.
"The desecration of our Catholic statues and churches is a grievous crime against all people who value religious freedom," said Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight.
"Together with Pope Francis, our bishops and faithful everywhere, we stand against violence, hatred and bigotry."
