Holy Transfiguration Cathedral in Los Angeles Robbed

admin | 27 December 2012

[December 23, 2012] The Rector of Holy Transfiguration Cathedral in Los Angeles, Archpriest Alexander Lebedeff, wrote the following in his Facebook page: “I write with great sadness that Holy Transfiguration Cathedral was broken in to on Saturday night, and many liturgical items were stolen, including chalices and veneration crosses. The total value of the items stolen (by preliminary count) was at least $50,000. The altars were ransacked as well. By God’s grace, we were able to have the church open for Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning. A police investigation is continuing. We ask for your prayers at this difficult time for our parish.”
