St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Downtown Honolulu reopened today after workers cleaned up glass shards from vandalized stained glass windows.

The vandalism happened Tuesday night, prompting church officials to close the church Wednesday.

A vandal or vandals threw stones against the oldest of the cathedral’s stained glass windows. Two stained glass panels, on the Ewa side were damaged. Blue duct tape covers the damage.

Walter Brownridge, dean of the Cathedral of Saint Andrew, said damage to two windows is estimated at $8,000 each.

The incident marked the second apparent vandalism attack in the past few weeks. A week ago Monday, furniture and the church’s harpsichord were damaged, he said.

Tomorrow night’s Iolani School Spring Concert will take place as scheduled as well as Sunday services.
