DENVER — A Brighton woman has stepped up to replace a nativity scene that was destroyed by vandals outside a north Denver Catholic parish last week.

The unidentified woman saw Denver7’s story on the vandalism and decided to help, offering replacement statues to St. Joseph’s Polish Catholic Church in Globeville.

Church staff set up the new nativity scene Sunday morning.

Sometime during the night of Dec. 27, a vandal or vandals desecrated the nativity scene that had been set up in front of the parish school. There also was some damage to the front doors of the school.

A suspect or suspects have not been identified.

Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to contact Denver Police or Crime Stoppers.
