TXT 2 DON8

Errant parishioners in Finland may soon be able to make donations via text message. Dean Matti Pikkarainen of the Oulu Cathedral intends to raise the issue at a nationwide church meeting next month. At the end of 2008, 80% of the Finnish population were members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Currently, the law forbids donations via text messaging, but the Dean noted that many listen to the services on radio, watch them on TV, or access them via the Internet. Mobile phone giant, Nokia, is headquartered in Finland.
