Priests are Standing By To Take Your Confession

h/t Big Blue Wave

I take the Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation seriously. I believe that it is important, but I really appreciate this cute and humorous approach to Confession.

In preparation for Easter this past year, parishes in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island were available for confession at extended hours, as advertised on the accompanying youtube video and web site.

Watch the video

You know, I believe that it is the only way to cleanse your soul from the inside out. As Fr. Vic says, all you need is a contrite heart.

Huffington Post reported: The ad campaign was launched before Palm Sunday by the dioceses of Brooklyn and Rockville Centre in an effort to increase the number of people who confess during Holy Week. Church officials say they saw an upsurge of followers seeking absolution.

It sure ain't your grandma's Catholic Church. Well, of course that's not true. This is just an incidental parody to invite people back.

Come on Home, please. We miss you.
