On June 15, 2015 at Coimbatore, several statues of Jesus Christ, Mother Mary and St. Joseph were vandalized by unknown miscreants at a prayer house. Garfield Jansen, who set up the prayer house on 1497 Trichy Road, stores and distributes freely religious articles. The articles that were destroyed in the Prayer House were collected from various Catholic pilgrim centers around the world. Articles like sacred relics, medals, statues, souvenirs, mementos, etc. which have been blessed by even Pope Francis and now laments that all had been reduced to rubble. No action was taken till press time.
