Priest Offers Golf Cart “Confessions On-The-Go” on College Campus: “Let’s Get Out to the People”

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 WLFI News 18. “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.”
