A church was set on fire in Canada

A Catholic church was completely destroyed in an arson attack in Albertina, Canada.

The Catholic Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary in Fort Chipewyan, Alberta, Canada was completely destroyed by a fire recognized as arson on August 25th. Authorities have opened an investigation. The faithful have announced that they are raising funds to rebuild it.

The church was one of the oldest in the province – it was built of wood in 1909 for a parish founded in 1847, which is now the oldest still in activity in Alberta, a territory hardly spared by dechristianization and amalgamations. of parishes, with closures and sales of churches.
