Around 40 had turned up for the service which was being held by 75-year-old Don Pierangelo. 

The priest says he was in the church and the small group of faithful arrived. 

The police say the priest was delivering the sacrament when they walked in. While he was wearing a mask, he was not wearing gloves. 

The group was ordered to leave – and the priest was told not to hold any more services.
