Father Peter Connor who is a priest in South Dublin shocked mass goers on Christmas morning when he presented with them with quite a surprise! After the sermon the Priest mounted his hoverboard and proceeded to exit the Church. Videos of the Father Connor have since gone viral.
It was certainly a Christmas to remember for local parishioners in Rathfarnham who applauded the priest as he left the Church on his new hoverboard. This video now has over 5,000 views and the priest has widely been acclaimed for his Christmas humour. Hoverboards have been hugely popular again this Christmas with stores like escooterireland.ie saying that sales are up another 10% on last Christmas.
Hoverboards have become something of a popular present at Christmas in the last few years so it is a fitting gift that Father Connor got for himself this Christmas. Father Connor said his stunt was aimed to entertain the kids at mass and to make them more interested in the Church and it certainly did not disappoint. Check out the video below of Father Connor on his hoverboard to see the roaring cheers he received as he leaves mass:
Each year a priest seems to steal the show with other years having a priest in Co. Wicklow who was showing toys at mass again to try entertain and influence the kids.
Other priest may look down on such behavior as mass should be taken seriously but all in all such actions are well received when done in the right spirit and no respect in lost on the importance of mass and most of all Christmas mass. Let’s hope that such spirits continue each Christmas and throughout the years to get some positive vibes for the Church again.
