Vandals struck St. Mary's Church in Waddington overnight damaging a 54 year old statue of the Virgin Mary.
Officials in the Diocese of Ogdensburg said the Virgin Mary statue has stood on the church lawn since the summer of 1959 when it was given by Mary Monihon of Louisville in memory of her family.
"I'm very disheartened, I mean, it's just a lovely community," he said.
Anyone with information on the statue vandalism is asked to contact state police at 379-0012.
