Who could be so cold as to break into a church to steal donations meant to benefit local people in need–especially during the Christmas season, which is traditionally a time of giving? That’s a question many people are asking themselves after just such an incident occurred at St. Theresa of the Child Jesus on Easton Road in Hellertown Tuesday night.
In a Facebook post shared by St. Theresa School staff Wednesday, it was announced that the church was broken into, and money from the congregation’s “poor boxes” stolen.
The break-in/theft were also posted about on the church’s Facebook page.
Anyone with information about the break-in is asked to call the Hellertown Police Department at 610-759-2200 or 610-838-7040, or the church rectory at 610-838-7045.
