A 100-year old church cross in Chico has been taken from its sanctuary. According to Father Pete Hansen of the Saint Augustine of Canterbury Anglican Church, he noticed the cross missing around the 11th of October. The cross was brought over from England to the church when it was founded 30-years ago. The church has always been open to the public during the week but now that an old piece of the church has been taken, Father Hansen says the church will not be open without supervision in the same space. Father Hansen also says he does not want the thief to be punished, all he wants is the cross back.
If you have any information regarding the theft please contact either the Chico Police Department or the church.
