A huge fire tore through St Joseph's Church in Salem, Oregon, on Thursday night. The parish said that the sanctuary was “pretty much a loss.” The parish was founded in 1853, and the current church was built in 1953.

St. Joseph is one of eight parishes in Portland Archdiocese that offer the Latin Mass.

The fire was caused by arson, according to the police. Detectives arrested Billy James Sweeten, age 48.
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Abp. Lefebvre
