Glory of Christ Church opens its doors to parishioners

It took seven grueling months for the Glory of Christ Church in Parkchester to reopen after it was destroyed by flames.

The place of worship was vandalized and then set on fire. Through donations, volunteers and hard work, the church was able to be restored.

More than 100 parishioners came out in celebration of the reopening.

Police continue to investigate the hate crime and are still looking for the vandals.
