Netherlands: Lost — parishioners. 50 Euros reward!

A Roman Catholic priest in the Netherlands is to put on display the names and photographs of parish members trying to leave the church in a bid to get them to stay.

“This is a large parish, and I don’t known everyone: by putting up the photos I thought someone might recognise someone they know who they could try to make stay in the church,” priest Harm Schilder told AFP on Tuesday…

Those wishing to leave must send a letter to the priest along with a photocopy of identity papers.

This is where Schilder gets the photos that will be displayed in the entrance hallway of the church in Tilburg in the south of the country.


Apart from being mega-daft, surely this is also an illegal invasion of privacy?

My advice to parishioners? Stay out of Harm’s way!
