Tabernacle stolen from Beaverton church

Posted: Updated:

A burglar pried the Tabernacle off its wooden altar at St. Cecilia's Church in Beaverton sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Beaverton police said the Tabernacle had been bolted to the altar, but that didn't stop the burglar from taking off from the prayer chapel with the Tabernacle in hand.

The Tabernacle is 1' tall by 1' wide and is made of gold.

St. Cecilia's Church is located at 5105 SW Franklin Ave.

Anyone with information about who's responsible for the burglary is asked to call police at 503-629-0111.
