MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The Madison Police Department is investigating a graffiti/damage to property complaint at a Catholic Church in Madison.

MPD said the incident at 2450 Atwood Ave. likely happened overnight.

The graffiti spans across the front door and entrance area in blue spray paint lettering.

“St. Bernard Parish is saddened over the graffiti on the front of the church. We understand people’s anger over the recent ruling by the Supreme Court, but this does nothing to solve any issues.
