April 5, 2011. In an effort to promote the sacrament of confession throughout New York City, two archdioceses teamed up to create a grassroots digital campaign in the form of a video contest (see www.i-confess.com). Two youths, Molly and Caleb Herboth, recently entered the contest with a one-minute video promoting the sacrament of confession, featuring a quote from St. Isidore: “Confession heals. In Confession, there is mercy. Do not doubt. Believe it firmly. Do not hesitate. Never despair of the mercy of God. Hope and have confidence in Confession.”

“I wanted to enter the contest to spread the mercy of God to the whole world,” said Caleb, who is currently a freshman at Immaculate Conception Apostolic School in Colfax, California. “I’m hoping the videos will inspire people to go to confession so they can go to heaven at the end of their life.”

The first-place prize is worth $25,000 toward an educational scholarship. A Catholic school or parish of the winner’s choice will also receive a matching prize of $25,000. The second place prize is worth $10,000 with a matching prize of $10,000 for a Catholic school or parish, and there are several third prizes worth $1000.

Since Caleb is a student at Immaculate Conception, he decided that if their video wins, the matching prize will go to his school. The winning video will be chosen based on which one has the most hits and likes (or thumbs up) on YouTube.

“The grants and scholarships will support our school,” he said. “We want to build a chapel and that might help.”

Caleb’s video is posted on the i-Confess YouTube channel at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKyinXFmxEc  If you like the video, don’t forget to give it a thumbs up!
