British archdiocese launches 'Sindr' for those needing to confess urgent sin

A Roman Catholic Church archdiocese in the United Kingdom is urging anyone who needs to confess an urgent sin to download their new app.

The Telegraph reported on Tuesday that the Archdiocese of St. Andrews and Edinburgh launched the world’s first GPS-powered “confession finder” that’s garnered the nickname “Sindr.”

The app is officially named The Catholic App.

The app uses similar technology to that of Tindr and guides the churchgoer to the nearest church offering confession or celebrating Mass within the archdiocese.

“This is a little bit of smart technology that could make a big impact on how the Catholic Church brings the mercy of God and the joy of the Gospel to our contemporary world,” Archbishop Leo Cushley of ST. Andrews and Edinburgh said.

The app was officially launched in an event at St. Peter’s Basilica.
