Catholic parish gets committee on indecent dressing

[In Nigeria not the USA!]


A Catholic parish has agreed on a committee to check indecent dressing in the parish.

The parish priest said this was one of the many measures put in place to checkmate the trend in the church.

He spoke last week at a Holy Mass organised for the Catholic Women’s Organisation (CWO) in the parish.

He expressed worry some Christian mothers had thrown caution and decent conduct to the wind by their mode of dressing both in the church and outside.

He said that to curb the trend, the parish would inaugurate a committee on indecent dressing.

“The members of the committee would be at the gate of the church to send women who dress indecently to go home and get properly dressed if they must attend mass.’’

The clergyman therefore advised mothers to shun indecent dressing to avoid being embarrassed.

He said that indecent dressing not only debased womanhood, “it is despicable and does not speak well of the woman’s family background.’’

“Mothers are supposed to be good ambassadors of their families.

“I don’t know why we Christians like to expose our body. We forget that the bible says that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

He expressed disappointment with mothers, who were in the habit of dressing indecently.

“It is regrettable that a large percentage of women now dress indecently, hence competing with teenagers.

He admonished Christian mothers to live a consummate life of decency and discipline “so that their children would emulate them’’.

  1. What a great move. I can see the reaction to that idea if it was tried in a parish in my country.
