My Confessor App will allow faithful to keep up digitally with when their local priest is hearing confession, or the sacrament wherein Catholics recount sins to a “confessor” who , in turn, doles out penance, usually in the form of prayers.

A Roman Catholic priest from Wisconsin says he wants people to "not feel uncomfortable asking about confession”.  The Rev. Richard Heilman wants "everybody ignited in the Holy Spirit.”

When accessed, the app will display a red status box, which means “Father is OUT,” or a green status box meaning, “Father is IN.” It also includes a description of Reconciliation, as well as related tips.

The app will be available for the iPhone and Android by the end of the month, and the app’s development updates can be found at myconfessor.org.
