Thief Steals Chalice from SS. Joachim and Ann

STLToday has the story of the theft of Fr. Noah Waldman's chalice. Still can't spend money in hell, from what I've been told. Pray for a conversion of heart of this thief, and a return of this good young priest's chalice:

ST. PETERS • St. Peters police are looking for whoever is responsible for burglarizing Sts. Joachim and Ann Catholic Church, where officials discovered a chalice, valued at about $6,000, missing.

Also, a set of golf clubs was stolen from the rectory garage and offering boxes were broken into, with an unknown amount of money missing.

The chalice was described as a solid silver goblet covered in gold with the inscription: "NOE ANDREAS PHILLIPPS WALDMAN / SACERDOS FACTVS DIE XXIV MAII MMVII."
Church officials believe the burglary happened between June 13 and June 17.

Anyone with information about the stolen chalice is asked to call St. Peters Police Detective David Beckman at 636-278-2244 ext. 3530.
