FOCA headquarters burglarized

The administrative building of the Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in America [FOCA] here was burglarized during the third week of August 2011.

According to Dr. John Schultz, national FOCA president, damage was substantial.

The break-in occurred on Saturday, August 20, according to Dr. Schultz.  Access was gained through a broken window.  Damage was found throughout the building, including the rest rooms, offices, and archives.  Liturgical items stored on site were not touched, however.

Dr. Schultz reported that cleanup and restoration has begun.

Founded in 1927 as the Federated Russian Orthodox Clubs, the FOCA has chapters in dozens of parishes across the US.
