Heritage church van­dal­ized again

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Victoria Vanier

Stanstead’s Sacré Coeur Church, a heritage build­ing, has been van­dal­ized once again, this time in broad day­light. Last week, fif­teen plain and col­ored orig­i­nal win­dow panes were smashed. “When I went into the church af­ter the brunch last week I saw glass all over the floor and it was very cold. That’s how I dis­cov­ered the win­dows bro­ken,” said Therese Gaulin, a vol­un­teer with the church.

“We just want peo­ple to be aware that chil­dren go to the church and of­ten cause trou­ble. We’d like peo­ple to help keep an eye on the church,” com­mented Mrs. Gaulin. The po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

Fif­teen paned win­dows on the Sacré Coeur Church, in Stanstead, were smashed by van­dals last week. The heritage value of the build­ing is high, as is demon­strated by the dates and names on the plaque on the right.
