GLENDALE, AZ - The congregation at the Saint Raphael Catholic Parish in Glendale is reeling after another round of vandalism.
The courtyard at the church, near 55th Avenue and Acoma Drive, is covered with black, red and orange paint.
The vandals painted upside down crosses, pentagrams and anarchy symbols on several buildings. There are also phrases denouncing organized religion.
The vandalism came as a sad surprise to parishioners gathered for a morning service.
"To see manifestations of hate on the church property is very upsetting to them," Reverend Edward Kaminski said.
The church has been the target of vandalism before. Several windows were broken, and an outside patio area was damaged in previous incidents, according to church officials.
Police are investigating.
"I am not the judge, God is. All hateful things can be forgiven," Kaminski said.
