Officials say the burglar busted through the front door of Holy Cross African Church at 122 West 129th Street, in Harlem Thursday evening, taking an ornate golden staff, a cross and the book. The Daily News reports the artifacts were worth more than $1,000.

Police did not immediately have a description of what the suspect looked like, and the church lacked security cameras.

The brownstone chapel first opened to worshippers in 1931.
