What a great idea.
Not too long ago, I was talking to a good friend who works as a hairdresser. Now, if you know a hairdresser, and one who is a faithful Catholic, then you would know that Saturday afternoon is not a convenient time to go to Confession. And my friend did not want to bother her pastor by making an appointment for what might only require 10 to 15 minutes.
In her case, I helped her find a resolution by reminding her that she cuts the hair of the former pastor of the parish to which she and I belonged - for free. She does not mind doing it; she considers it part of her tithing. But given Father comes about monthly to get his hair cut, I suggested to her that the next time he calls to schedule his appointment, she ask him to bring his purple stole.
She did. He did. And now after each haircut, they pop around back of the salon for a quick confession.
Now, I know the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is doing this for Lent. But - why not once a month all year to encourage working Catholics to come to Reconciliation? I might even suggest that it can be the seat of the Bishop of the diocese, or in a case like my own Diocese of Knoxville that covers a lot of geographic area, one church in each deanery will take its turn hosting this night.
