FRANKLINTON - Congregations at a pair of Washington Parish churches are fuming after recent burglaries.

The first occurred at Holy Family Catholic Church in Franklinton. When people showed up for mass, they realized money for the parish's youth group had been stolen from the church's office.

There was similar scene at nearby Fisher United Methodist where someone stole a VCR, DVD set and a special chalice.

Both churches have increased security measures following the break-ins. Religious leaders say they'd like their belongings back, but agree the burglars should be forgiven, especially since it's the Christmas season.

Authorities have little information to work on at this time.
