Arson Suspected In Catholic Church Fire In Creve Coeur

Creve Coeur, MO  (KTRS)  Arson is suspected in the fire that heavily damaged a west county church.

That’s according to investigators with Tuesday night’s fire at St. Monica’s Catholic Church in Creve Coeur. Fire investigators say it appears that the Nativity scene on the church alter was intentionally set on fire.

The Reverend Joseph Weber says it appears someone piled items, including a large chair and the pulpit, on top of the Nativity scene before the fire. He says the “entire parish has been violated.”

St. Louis regional bomb and arson detectives are assisting Creve Coeur police in the investigation. Police say the church was unlocked at the time of the blaze.

No one was hurt in the fire.
