ORCHARD PARK N.Y. (WKBW) Orchard Park police are now trying to figure out who spray-painted a large amount of graffiti on a maintenance building for St. Bernadette Catholic Church on South Abbott Road.

The vandals left a large cryptic message that said "When society abolishes all that is fun, the only fun will be to abolish society."

The graffiti also included a picture of a figure wearing a tie and a question mark for a face.

Police say they believe the message was created by kids and was not specifically targeting anyone, or any group.

Authorities believe the graffiti message was created sometime over the weekend.

Fr. Paul Seil, pastor of St. Bernadette Church, says he realized the message had some sort of political meaning, but he admits that finding it on a church building shortly after several people were killed at a Wisconsin Sikh temple, caused some concern.

The pastor is also worried about repeat vandalism and is now offering a $500 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of the vandals.

Anyone with information is asked to call Orchard Park Police at 662-6444.
