Pittsburgh church to offer a 2.30am Mass to confess sins of night before!

November 14, 2010 - London

Looking for a spiritual alternative to the boozy night outs? A church in Pittsburgh has decided to offer a late night Mass.

Earlier too, churches in the city used to offer middle-of-the-night services for employees who worked odd hours but Rev. Carmen D'Amico from Epiphany Church is bringing the tradition back with a 2.30am service, reports the Daily Mail.ather D'Amico said he's adding the weekly Mass on Sundays, timed for just after the bars close.

He hopes to attract those out late on Saturday nights-especially local college students who are up into the early hours but is also appealing to people who want a quiet alternative to a wild night out.

Officials have been handing out fliers at nearby universities to publicise the new service to draw in the younger crowd.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported the service was dubbed the 'Printer's Mass' because it used to be popular with newspaper employees but the early Mass hasn't been held since 1991.

Father D'Amica who is a self-confessed Italian night owl understands people liking the flexibility and wants to ensure all his parishioners are catered for.
