HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A historic Honolulu church was targeted by vandals for the second time in the last few weeks, sustaining damage to two of its stained glass windows.

Large rocks were thrown at the windows of St. Andrew's Cathedral sometime Tuesday night, sending shards of glass across the floor. Officials said the shards must be recovered in order to repair the windows.

One of the great doors on the west window was also yanked partially off its fixture.

"Sometimes the challenges of being an urban church that's open during the day for people to pray and tourists come through, we have services as well," said Rev. Walter Brownridge, dean of the Cathedral of St. Andrew. "We had to cancel our 5:30 Evensong service today because of the safety issues with so much glass, shards on the premises, and we managed to get it cleaned up."

St. Andrew's Cathedral will remain closed until further notice.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
