Vandalism occurs after appearance of 'demons'

Bucks County Courier Times

Two "demons" made an appearance at a Tullytown church a few weeks ago, according to the pastor.

The two walked into St. Michael the Archangel Church on Levittown Parkway in Tullytown, Bucks County, PA about five and a half weeks ago and introduced themselves as "demons," Rev. Michael C. DiIorio said Tuesday.

DiIorio said the two individuals, whom he declined to describe, walked around after Sunday Mass asking to speak with the pastor. When parishioners pointed DiIorio out, the two walked up to him and said they were "demons" and wanted him to know they’d moved into the area.

"The boldness of it," DiIorio said of his surprise. "To come up and introduce themselves to you in that way."

He said he’s aware of Satanic graffiti and symbols, but this is the first time he’s heard of a demonic or Satanic group actually introducing themselves.

DiIorio said he put the incident at St. Michael’s out of his mind right after it happened until vandalism was found at the church.

In the past two weeks, lewd words have been carved into the church doors and a petition book on the altar of the Blessed Mother was defaced. On Friday the church received a letter in the rectory mail that contained threats. The church campus was evacuated — the school was out for teacher meetings — because police believed it should be taken seriously. More
