I bet my church has something yours doesn't.

Bullet holes!

Cool, eh?

Apparently, years ago, some nutbag came into the church with a handgun and started firing at the ceiling.  Fortunately, he was the only one in the church at the time and no one was hurt.  Also fortunately, he only shot at the ceiling.  Not the paintings, nor the statues, nor the stained glass.  Just the ceiling.  Weird, yet true.

Your parish also has carrera marble statues of St. Peter and St. Paul at the bottom of the Atlantic thanks to a German U-Boat. They were to stand where the two candelabras dwell.

I think I mentioned that a while back. Our parishes are full of stories, most of which we are slowly losing.
