Faith at your fingertips

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - You text your mom, your boss, but how about your priest?

Now some Catholics might be able to ask for forgiveness with their phones.

While holding iPhones, Blackberrys and Droids, these friars explained prayer texting.

The friars of the Holy Name Province on the east coast started the idea about a week ago.

People can simply text the word 'prayer' to 306-44, for free.

Friars have received more than one thousand texts per day from people in the United States and Canada.
