Theft during Mass at Good Help Shrine caught on surveillance video

A house of worship is probably the last place you would expect a theft going down but it was at The Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help that authorities and the congregation found out recently that not even a church is immune to thieves.

This is a special place, and not just for the Town of Green Bay, but on a national scale too.

"This is the only place in the United States that the Blessed Virgin appeared that is recognized," says Dale Davister a parishioner of The Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help. Davister has been coming here for years with family and friends and says since the national acknowledgement traffic from out-of-towners has increased on a huge scale.

But it was what was seen at a Wednesday Mass on March 30th, by only a surveillance video camera that has the congregation talking.

"A lady was at mass and she went up to receive Holy Communion while leaving her purse in her pew and apparently someone grabbed her wallet," says Father Peter Stryker.

The pilgrims interviewed give a great faith filled response to the incident.
