TOKIO, N.D. — A church on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation that was damaged by vandals is once again holding services.

Christ the King Catholic Church in Tokio was closed for two weeks after vandals on Aug. 20 set off fire extinguishers and broke windows. They also stole numerous items.

The Rev. Charles Leute tells the Devils Lake Journal that the mess has been cleaned up and the church is once again celebrating Mass.

No one has been charged in the vandalism.
