Yesterday afternoon (Thursday, August 6, 2020), the Natick Fire Department responded to an alarm at the former St. Patrick Parish properties. Fire officials discovered a small fire believed to be accidently set by vandals in the former convent, located at 5 Wilson Street.
In addition to the fire, both the school and the former convent were severely vandalized. Multiple windows were broken and both buildings were littered with trash and spray-painted with graffiti. The Natick Building Commissioner has determined there was no structural damage to either building.
We understand that several suspects have been questioned by the Natick Police Department. As this is still an ongoing investigation, further details have not been released at this time.
Stonegate Group will be fully cooperating with local authorities to provide any additional information needed for the investigation.
We would also like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to both the Natick Fire & Police Departments for their immediate response to the incident. Thank you for helping to serve our community!
