Seminaries Mistaken for Fancy Dress Bachelor Party, Almost Kicked Out Of Bar

From the Catholic News Agency:

…a group of seminarians in Cardiff over the weekend when they went to The City Arms pub to celebrate the July 29 ordination of Father Peter McClaren.

Thinking they were a rowdy stag party in fancy dress, pub management initially asked the men to leave.

Realizing their error, they invited the men to stay and bought them a round of drinks.

“The staff thought they were a stag. We do have quite a few issues on the weekends with parties wearing fancy dress so it is our policy to turn them away,” said assistant manager Matt Morgan, according to the BBC.

The Pope could really turn around attendance problems if he declared that buying rounds counted as a plenary indulgence.
