No one was injured, but a minor crash Sunday morning at Our Lady of the Gulf Catholic Church in Bay St. Louis did give the Rev. Adam Urbaniak a chance to inject a little levity into the situation.

Urbaniak posted on Facebook a photo of himself, head in hand, next to a late model sedan perched on the steps of the church.

"There are rumors in Bay St. Louis that I am offering a drive through service," he wrote. "All who spread those rumors, please stop."

After assurances that the elderly lady who drove backwards instead of forwards was OK, wisecracks flooded Urbaniak's newsfeed.

"See what happens when you try to leave after communion," Joshua Ferrill wrote. "Maybe you guys should switch to grape juice instead of wine."

Even Monday, Urbaniak was having a hard time convincing folks he wasn't the driver.

"If rumors continue about you offering drive through services you'll have to hang a drive through confessional sign: 'TOOT AND TELL OR BURN IN HELL,'" wrote Sandra Ladner.
