A tabernacle weighing about 75 kilograms, which contained a ciborium and eucharist, was stolen from St Joseph’s between October 1 and 3.
Fr Peter-John Neivandt said the gold ciborium – a cup used for communion – was of particular importance. He believes it may have been taken to perform satanic worship. It was brought to the area by the priest who oversaw construction of the Church Street building in 1852. The item may date back as early as the 1700s. “They took the blessed tabernacle, they ripped it out of the main altar and absconded,” he said. “According to police, it looks like they’ve jemmied it out with screwdrivers or a jemmy bar. It’s been hell for the last three weeks.”
