Perth Church burned – arson suspected

Archbishop Barry Hickey made an unexpected visit to St Dominic's Church in the Perth suburb of Innaloo on Sunday morning after suspected arsonists torched the parish church on Saturday night.

The Archbishop told ABC television that he is at a loss to understand why the church appears to have been the target of an arson attack. He celebrated Mass for the parishioners in the school hall. The media in Perth is reporting damage of at least $100,000 but this is likely to be upgraded when an assessment of structural damage is made on Tuesday. (Monday is the Foundation Day public holiday in Perth.)SOURCE – FULL STORY:
