Police identify suspect in cathedral vandalism

By | November 3, 2021

Father Morehead said Oct. 11 that the assailant seemed to have some “deep personal wounds and grievances” against God and the Church.
Archdiocese of Denver spokesman Mark Haas has said that since February 2020, at least 25 parishes or ministry locations in northern Colorado are known to have been the target of vandalism, property destruction, or theft.
“It continues to be troubling to see the increased reports of vandalism at Catholic churches, both across the county and in our archdiocese, and it is certainly unfortunate when our parishes are targeted simply because of our beliefs,” Haas said in a statement to CNA. 
“We continue to pray for the conversion of those who carry out acts of desecration against our churches, statues, and religious symbols.”
The cathedral had also sustained damage in mid-2020 amid racially charged protests in downtown Denver. The church building and rectory were spray painted with the slogans “Pedofiles” [sic], “God is dead,” “There is no God,” along with anti-police, anarchist, and anti-religion phrases and symbols.
In an Oct. 2 video, Cramer said, “I was raised Catholic, I was baptized … at Saint Frances Cabrini in Littleton, Colorado,” but that “the Catholic Church never felt right.”
