A 12-year-old Framingham boy is being charged for vandalizing and setting fires in St. Stephen's Church.

The boy, whose name was not released, used a candle and matches to start a fire at the Concord Street church on March 18 and another fire at the church on Sunday during a Palm Sunday Mass, police said.

He also allegedly broke the fingers off a statue of Mary and broke an arm off of a statue of Jesus on the cross. Police said the Department of Social Services and the district attorney's office are investigating.
