Catholic Priest Who Recently Resigned From Priesthood, Set To Wed His Fiancée' Come March 17

A Former Catholic priest, Rev. Patrick Henry Edet, has fixed March 17 for his marriage to his fiancée who he would unveil next week. According yo New Telegraph, Edet made the disclosure on Tuesday during his Grace Family service. Edet’s resignation from Catholic Church about six months ago generated a huge discourse in the media for weeks.

The popular Uyo-based priest and radio preacher, while addressing his radio audience on Planet 101.1FM, Uyo, said then that “the resignation marked the beginning of ‘freedom’ for his spirit and soul”. He said: “From today henceforth, I cease to be a Catholic priest, in my spirit and in my soul. 

I forgive those who will criticise me, I live for God. I seek freedom for my soul. As I leave, I leave smiling. I am so happy that I am free.” While expressing his joy, Edet said he should be addressed as Rev Patrick Edet. 

Edet, who hosts a weekly Christian programme entitled: “Grace and Inspiration,” on Planet 1010.1FM, Akwa Ibom State, added that there was no need for him to continue with the Catholic Church because peace deserted him while he was there.

He said after 11 long years, he strongly felt the need to leave, because he was feeling boxed in and it was affecting his personal relationship with God. He said leaving was the best thing, as he was now finally free.
