McCallion condemns Christchurch vandalism

13 September, 2017 - by Elisha McCallion

Sinn Fein MP Elisha McCallion has condemned a break-in and vandalism at Christchurch in Derry.

The Foyle MP said:

"This break-in and wanton vandalism at Christchurch in Derry was disgraceful and I condemn it utterly. 

"All places of worship should be treated with respect and any attack on them is an act of sacrilege.

"Not only was the historic church organ vandalised but other sacred items were also destroyed. 

"Those responsible for this mindless attack are not representative of the people of this city and have nothing to offer society. 

"My thoughts are with Archdeacon Robert Miller and all the parishioners at Christchurch. 

"I know that this city will rally round and support them in any way we can at this difficult time.

"I would also encourage anyone with information on this attack to bring it forward to the PSNI."
