DENVER -- The small parish of St. Francis of Assisi in Denver is cleaning up Monday after two men vandalized the facility over the weekend.

The parish, which has been the victim of vandalism before, was able to record the incident on surveillance video. The vandals were caught on camera taking a club to a statue in the front of the church, breaking into a back window, and causing other damage.

"This person has a problem with God," said pastor John Kalabokes, in an interview with FOX31 Denver on Monday.

The church shared the surveillance video with several media outlets hoping to encourage those responsible to turn themselves in.

The church, which is located near George Washington High School, is already struggling financially and the burden of replacing a statue and a window will take a significant chunk of the church's budget.
