Sinless Suburbia

You can draw your own conclusions.

I have in my nicotine-stained hands the schedule of Confession-times for FOUR west-suburban parishes, which between them serve a minimum of 5,000 Catholics over the age of 8.

The schedule?

2+ hours TOTAL (between all the Parishes) on Saturdays (the "+" accounts for one Parish which lists a start-time, but no end-time);

and 30 minutes TOTAL on non-Saturdays.

Let's say 3.0 hours every week, total, over 4 parishes.

Shall we assume that there are two priests hearing confessions during those hours in each parish?

Fine. That makes 6.0 hours.
