  • Priest Offers Golf Cart “Confessions On-The-Go” on College Campus

    This is so cool!

    St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church pastor Fr. Patrick Baikauskas, O.P, at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana offers confessions in a new, original way.

    The campus ministry pastor created “the confession to-go cart.” He drives a go-cart with the sign “confessions to-go,” offering confessions right on the college campus.

    “If this is a really important sacrament, then let’s show it,” Fr. Patrick told . “Let’s get out where the people are–where the students are–take this golf cart out [and] do confessions on-the-go.” “Pope Francis said we’re supposed to smell like the sheep,” Fr. Patrick said. “Smelling like the sheep means you’re not going to stay in that church and wait for all the people to come to us.

    “Pope Francis wants us to go out to the people and experience them right where they are.”

  • “Pope Francis wants us to go out to the people and experience them right where they are.”



    So that is why we hear stories of Priests and Bishops caught going to Gay Bars and other Homosexual hang-outs, they are just "going out to the people and experiencing them right where they are"  (Yuck!)

  • Examination of conscience anyone?

  • I'll probably get crucified for this here, but, apart from the golf cart itself, going out and actively making yourself available for and publicly promoting Confession is probably a great service.  Maybe you'll catch someone with bad conscience who might want to go to Confession but has been putting it off or something.  There are times when I wanted to go to Confession that I would have welcomed the sight of a priest rolling up in a golf cart.  It would have been a great consolation to me, almost as if God were telling me that He WANTS to forgive me.  Now, the golf cart is a bit undignified for a priest I think, but otherwise I like this.  Hey, at least this priest believes in Confession.  And he looks to be wearing a more Traditional habit.

    [NOTE:  this comment entirely prescinds from the consideration that a NO priest is only doubtfully valid in my mind]

  • Of course, he should get out and not sit in such close proximity to women, such as the short-skirted young lady who sat right next to him in the cart.
