(TORONTO STAR) — After having been broken off and stolen from a statue outside Sudbury’s Paroisse Saint-Anne-des-Pins church, Baby Jesus’s head has been returned.
Father Gérald Lajeunesse of the parish says though he has no idea what happened to the head in the first place, he is “relieved,” and always hoped the story would end well.
The head had been missing for about a year.

When Father Lajeunesse arrived at the church a few years ago, it was clear the head had been decapitated in the past and was held together with adhesive. It had been knocked off its body repeatedly as a prank, but could typically be found nearby — this time, the head was removed and stolen.
