News made rounds on the internet when Akwa-Ibom State-based Catholic priest, Rev. Patrick Henry Edet, resigned from the Catholic Church due to loss of peace while he was there.
According to New Telegraph, the former Catholic priest has fixed March 17, 2018, for his marriage to his fiancée who he will unveil next week.
Mr Edet made the disclosure on Tuesday during his Grace Family service. While announcing his resignation on the 31st of July, 2017, he had said “the resignation marked the beginning of ‘freedom’ for his spirit and soul.
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.”
He 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.
