Vandal yells 'Long live Satan', after egging, decapitating Nativity statues at Catholic Church in Illinois

BERWYN – Three statues were reported vandalized Dec. 7 , two of them beheaded, in a courtyard of the St. Odilo Church convent, 6617 West 23rd Street.

A nun from the convent reported hearing a disturbance in the courtyard at about 6:30 p.m. She and another nun went out to investigate and found three statures knocked to the ground, one of them with the head missing.

A volunteer who was helping prepare for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe said a male teenager also threw an egg into the church hallway and yelled “Long live Satan” and fled.

Eggs were also thrown at a nativity scene in front of the church.
