Silver chalice stolen from Saint James Church

posted by Alecia Kaus in batavia, chalice stolen, St. James' Church.

Batavia Police were called to Saint James Episcopal Church early this afternoon for the larceny of a silver chalice.

According to police, the chalice was stolen sometime during this past week. There was no evidence of a break-in at the church which is located at 405 E. Main St.

Members of Saint James Church say the silver chalice is an important part of their congregation. The all-silver chalice is used for the consecrated wine and is administered at the eucharist. Church members would like to have the silver chalice returned; they say it has been part of the St. James community for a long time.

Batavia Police are currently working to obtain further information in connection with the larceny.

Anyone with information on the silver chalice can contact the Batavia Police at 585-345-6350 or online at
