A statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary stolen from St. Francis Catholic Church in Friday Harbor has been returned to the church.

Information as to where it went, and by whom, has not been released by the church.

Parishioners have been developing a Marian Garden in the fenced property behind Heffernan Hall and the church office located at 425 Price Street in Friday Harbor, WA. On June 27, and the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary was placed in the garden among the newly constructed terraces of flowering annuals and perennials, roses, planters, walkways, patio and pergola.

On Sunday, July 8, before the 9 am Mass, a few parishioners noticed that the statue was missing and reported this to Rev. Watson Paramasivam, the pastor and celebrant, at the conclusion of the service.

Rev. Watson stated that he had last visited the Marian Garden on Saturday evening following the 5:30pm Mass, between 6:30pm and 7:00 pm. He specifically went into the garden to admire the pergola which had been completed earlier that day.

After the discovery of the missing statue on Sunday morning, a report was filed at the San Juan County Sherriff’s office in Friday Harbor.
