Burlington Bishop Christopher Coyne and the Diocese of Burlington are saddened over the desecration of the tabernacle and the Blessed Sacrament at All Saints Church in Richford which was discovered on June 27.

In solidarity with the parishioners of All Saints Parish, Bishop Coyne has asked that all parishes in the Diocese of Burlington offer special prayers for a greater respect and appreciation for the gift of the Holy Eucharist at all the Masses being held this weekend, and, if schedules allow, for parishes to offer a Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration after the last Sunday Mass on Sunday, June 30.
