re: Fire at
May 29, 2012
At approximately 3:45 a.m. the morning of May 29, 2012, suspicious activity prompted a fire at
Catholic Church in
( Brampton 8530 Chinguacousy Road).
The church sprinkler system and fire crews prevented further damage to the building. No one was inside the church at the time of the fire.
Local fire and police officials are investigating. It appears the blaze was deliberately set.
The church has suffered damage significant enough that it will remain closed for at least one week. In the interim period, parishioners are encouraged to attend or contact other Catholic churches in the area for pastoral care, including:
