Raccoon Slips Into Sanctuary During Mass…

…and immediately complains about the bad hymns and bland homily.

Seriously though – a raccoon really did sneak into a San Diego church, providing entertainment during the Mass.

No, not that one. Just your regular, run-o-the-mill, natural raccoon.

ChurchPop has the story:

Last week at the Catholic University of San Diego, a raccoon snuck into Mass and started climbing around the sanctuary. The animal was quiet and still enough at first that not many people noticed it perched at the front of the church, until the homily when it started moving and climbing down to ground level. One news report says it caused quite the commotion and laughter from the students at the Mass.

A student named Julie recorded the masked Mass-goer and posted it on her Twitter account.

Hey, if the church has trouble getting rid of the raccoon, the Bishop oughta give him the Sacrament of Confirmation. That’ll guarantee it never comes back.
