(In reply to answer by K Sengupta)

At the outset, the problem title suggests that the parity of a given digit in the code may be connected with the solution.

Accordingly, we substitute a "#" symbol for each even digit (including  0) and place an underscore (_) symbol for every odd digit to obtain the following structure.

#___#__##__###_#__#
##_##_#__#__#__#__#
#_#_#_####_ #__####
#___#_#__#__#__#__ #
#___#_#__#__#__#__ #


It is now observed that the "#" symbols in the above figure describe the word "MATH".

Consequently, the required secret message is "MATH".
