Vandalized Our Lady of Guadalupe Statue Replaced by Knights of Columbus
Three months ago, vandals destroyed the statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe in an attack at Our Lady of Solace Church, on Coney Island in the Diocese of Brooklyn. The Knights of Columbus soon announced that they would contribute the money to pay for the replacement of the statue. Supreme Knight Carl Anderson pointed out in a letter to the pastor, Fr. Javier Flores, that 20 years ago when he became Supreme Knight, he dedicated the Knights of Columbus to Our Lady of Guadalupe. He announced a grant of $10,000 for a new statue.
