Break in at Christ Church, Tramore
Intruders ransacked the vestry and chancel and forced entry into the adjoining hall. This was discovered by parishioners as they met for service on Sunday morning.
The intruders got away with two small communion bread boxes, three bottles of communion wine and about 8 euros from a donation box.
This was the second such robbery in Waterford churches over the weekend as Faithlegg church was also targeted.
Dean Jansson would like to thank Fr. Michael Toomey CC who came on the scene offering much kind support for the community.
Within hours parishioners made good the building and were grateful that services can resume as usualnext Sunday at 11.30 am.
A service will be held in the coming weeks to reconsecrate the building.
