Arson fires in Catholic churches around the U.S.

Arson is not normally associated with Catholic churches. However, someone paying attention to diocesan newspapers in the past month might think otherwise.

In early June the Intermountain Catholic of the Diocese of Salt Lake City reported that a church in West Jordan, Utah, was damaged twice by arson.

Recently, The Catholic Observer in the Diocese of Springfield, Mass., published an article detailing a parish in Chicopee, Mass., that had a new playground burned and melted (some parts were made of plastic) by an arson fire.
