He might look as though he is moving around like some kind of Holy Spirit, but this priest is actually on a hoverboard. And now he’s in trouble for it.

The priest was said to have greeted the congregation and sang a Christmas song before delivering his sermon still wheeling around on the device, but the Catholic Church didn’t like it.

He’s been suspended from his job at Our Lady of Miraculous Medal in Biñan Parish, Philippines, where he gave the sermon on Christmas Eve.

People in the congregation were amused and clapped when the sermon on the board began, but with its sense of humour being practically non-existent, the Church didn’t like it.

The Diocese of San Pablo said it was a violation of the ‘highest form of worship’.

It said on Facebook: The Eucharist demands utmost respect and reverence.

‘It is the Church’s highest form of worship, not a personal celebration where one can capriciously introduce something to get attention.’

The diocese added that the priest said that it was a ‘wake up call’ for him. ‘He acknowledged that his action was not right and promised that it will not happen again.

‘He will be out of the parish and will spend some time to reflect on this past event. He would like to apologise for what happened.’
