A Catholic priest caught a couple having sex beneath a statue of the Virgin Mary in the grounds of his church. The shocked clergyman discovered Anthony Getchius, 43, and Noelle Smart, 48, in a ‘sacred area’ of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic church on the Jersey Shore Tuesday afternoon.

They were caught in a secluded garden between the rectory and the church – next door to the local police headquarters, NBC6 reports. Officers raced the short distance from the station to the church garden, where they witnessed the public sex session themselves, Seaside Heights Police Chief Tommy Boyd said.
