The chapel of a hospital seriously desecrated in France

The chapel of Saint-Louis Hospital in La Rochelle (western France) was desecrated on Monday on the 23rd of March.


“When I knelt down at the altar to begin my prayer, I realised that something was wrong,” explained the chaplain. He noticed that the altar cloths were stained with a yellow liquid and that in front of one of the side chapels, an imposing plaster statue of Christ was “pulverised”.

Matches and a cigarette butts that were found at the scene indicate that the perpetrators tried to set fire to the chapel.
