Former Catholic Priest, Patrick Henry Edet dedicates his Child to the Church
Two years after leaving the Catholic Church to get married, Reverend Patrick Henry Edet and his wife, Iyene, welcomed a Child.
The couple today dedicated their Child, Mbiet-Yaweh, to the Grace family, also known as the Commonwealth of Champions, at Ibom Hall, IBB Avenue, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State. .
In announcing his resignation on July 31, 2017, Reverend Edet declared that "this resignation marked the beginning of" freedom "for his spirit and soul.
Edet said that after 11 long years he felt a strong need to leave because he felt locked up and affected his personal relationship with God.
In his words:
"From today, I stop being a Catholic priest, in my mind and in my soul. I forgive those who criticize me, I live for God. I seek freedom for my soul. When I leave, I leave with a smile, I am so happy to be free. "
