In this comedy, a bookie dons the guise of a priest to hide out from the law after he has a scuffle with a cop and leaves him for dead. Unfortunately, as a priest, he is conned into offering the wedding mass for a socially prominent young woman. At the same time, a different crook is also impersonating a priest. This crook is really bad and purloins the mother of the bride's jewels. A chase between the bogus priests ensues until both of them end up at a clergyman's convention. Mayhem continues to ensue.
