Sculpture of saint sought for return to city church

This is the work that was lifted from the church

An antique representation of Saint Gerardo María Mayela vanished form the city’s church of the Inmaculada Concepción in August, and the work has not turned up.

The Judicial Investigating Organization sent out information on the wooden three-dimensional sculpture Thursday and said the work was very valuable. They said information on the stolen object could be phoned in to 2277-0342, 2277-0343 or 2277-0346.

The saint was an Italian miracle worker who died when he was just 29. He is revered as a special protector of women.
