RIO GRANDE CITY – A Rio Grande City community is feeling no place is safe after their church was vandalized.

Anti-semitic slurs were just part of what was spray-painted on the walls of Sagrado Corazon.

Police say whoever is responsible wanted to send a direct message to the Catholic Church.

Irma Garcia has always leaned on her faith; now more than ever.

Police say her church for the last 40 years, became the canvas for someone to send a message of hate.

Rio Grande City Assistant Police Chief Javier Solis tells us they got the call Saturday morning.

He hopes the words now washed away by church leaders, is just words.
