AJC Statement on Recent Offensive Graffiti at Halifax Churches

Halifax, NS – Over the weekend, two Catholic parishes in Halifax, St. Agnes Church and Saint Benedict Church, were vandalized with offensive graffiti.  

In response, Naomi Rosenfeld, Executive Director of the Atlantic Jewish Council stated:

“The AJC was deeply disturbed to learn St. Agnes and Saint Benedict churches had been defaced by graffiti, especially since it appears these hateful acts took place on Easter Sunday, one of the holiest days in the Christian calendar. We know law enforcement takes criminal acts like this very seriously, and we hope the perpetrators will be caught and quickly brought to justice. To the congregants of St. Agnes and St. Benedict’s, we stand with you and hope that – despite this abhorrent incident – you had a joyous and meaningful Easter.”

    Thank you very much Mrs Rosenfeld for your comments on behalf of the Atlantic Jewish Council. Your words made my heart sing. Unfortunately the same incident took place at my parish, Our Lady of the Assumption, here in Stratford, PEI. I pray for the people who did this. Despite the vandalism we too had a joyous and meaningful celebration of Easter.

    With great respect and best regards,
    Sandy Cameron

    What a cowardly act…. The people who did this must not be able to debate logically, so they have to resort to cheap shots. Don’t let it get you down!
