Sinful drivers can repent on the run with the opening today of Australia’s first drive-through confessional.
The pray-as-you-go service is to become slicker, with a sin-selection board to be installed by Easter and a smartphone app on the way.
South Melbourne Catholic priest Fr Bob McGuire said yesterday that the move brought the church up to speed with modern life.
“Everybody drives past this place but no one comes in,” Fr McGuire said.
“Now they can stop at the window, open their window and confess their sins. Then I’ll reassure them that they’ll be right.”
