There's a Reason This Pastor is Wearing a Cassock
In the video below, you'll see the 32-year-old French-born priest snowboarding in his Cassock. In 2017, Pr. Commins told Epic Pew that doing so is a form of evangelism.
“With the cassock, it has a real power, too. Because many people ask me where I am from. They ask if I am a real priest, he says. "It helps me be a real apostolate for the church. It shows that we can have a priest doing normal stuff like sports.”
Commins says participating in sports activities has allowed him to meet people, many of whom have later visited his church.
