Burglars raided a priest's lodgings in Wiltshire while he was conducting a church service.
The break-in happened on Sunday at the Polish Community Centre in Waterworks Road, Trowbridge.
The centre houses a church and social club and an evening mass was taking place at the time.
The thieves took a black leather briefcase containing some cash and £70 in coins collected earlier from the morning service.
