A church in Toronto says its statue of the Virgin Mary, which stands in front of the building, was decapitated overnight Sunday.

In a Facebook post, the Our Lady of Lebanon church in Toronto said they “were shocked to discover a horrible act of vandalism: We found that the statue of the Virgin Mary … was decapitated!”

“Our parishioners, when exiting the church, were horrified to see such a deplorable and malicious act.”

The post said the church has contacted Toronto police, who were on scene Monday.

It also said it will be reviewing the footage from the security cameras.
