Church Adheres To Social Distancing With Remote Controlled Car Collection Plate

A church has been seen using a remote control car to pass around the collection plate. Well, that's one way to keep up social distancing.


Venues have been working hard to ensure distancing guidelines are adhered to as the world continues to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Some places have been asked to spread people by at least 1.5 metres and others have placed limits on how many patrons are allowed at any given time.

There's also been a special focus on high-touch items in gyms, food halls and churches.

One Catholic church recognised the potential issues of passing a collection plate through dozens of hands during a pandemic. So, they used a RC car with a collection plate on the back to zoom around the church hall. Pretty clever.

It's not entirely clear where the footage was filmed, but the footage was shared by TikTok user @bouzioficial.

Elsewhere, a priest went viral after images were shared of him socially distancing from churchgoers by using a water pistol to dispense Holy Water.

Father Tim Pelc, who lives in Detroit, Michigan, implemented the clever solution after the city introduced lockdown measures.

However, he ended up the unexpected recipient of viral fame after the funny photos were shared online by St Ambrose Parish.

That method has also been used to help baptise some babies during the pandemic.

A photo of the bizarre water pistol baptism went viral on social media, although the exact location of where the photo was taken is unclear.

The baby, who only looks a couple of months old, was held out in a ceremonial dress and seemingly squirted in the face by a water pistol-wielding priest standing at least six feet away. You have to commend them for their dedication to distancing.
