QUINCY, Massachusetts — Police are asking for the public's help as they try to find out who vandalized a Quincy church.

The Patriot Ledger (http://bit.ly/1k9brTd ) reports a custodian at the Community United Methodist Church discovered the damage on Wednesday, which included two stained-glass windows smashed in by rocks. A gymnasium and youth center in the building was also ransacked.

The Rev. Susan Jarek-Glidden calls the damage "infuriating," though she was at least grateful that no one was injured and no fires were set during the vandalism spree.

Jarek-Glidden said she has no idea why anyone would target the church, and plans to devote her Sunday sermon to the consequences of the act.

In December, someone broke into the church and stole a laptop computer and cash donations.
