Former Catholic Priest Is Set To Wed, See Photo of Wife

Former Roman Catholic Priest, Rev. Patrick Edet is set to tie the knot in a wedding fixed for Saturday March 17, 2018 at Ibom Hall, IBB Avenue, Uyo, Akwa Ibom state. His fiancee has been identified as Inyene Sampson Akpan who hails from Atai Ibiaku Itam in Itu Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State and a graduate of University of Uyo, according to TheInk Newspaper.

According to reports, Inyene will be officially presented today during Grace Family fellowship to the congregation as was promised by Patrick Edet last week.

It could be recalled that Patrick Edet had announced his resignation from priesthood on August 2nd last year during his radio programme, Grace and Inspiration on Planet FM.

Read the report via TheInk Newspaper;

The lady, according to a source, was a teacher at Hillside International Nursery School, Uyo until her resignation few months ago. She was a French teacher and a onetime Students’ Union Government (SUG) presidential aspirant in Uniuyo, it was learnt.

A staff in Hillside School told our reporter that Inyene had resigned from her teaching job few months ago citing personal reasons. But it was learnt that her resignation was unconnected to her marriage plans with Edet.

Her resignation, it was gathered, must have been informed by the need for her to have more time to concentrate on Grace Family programmes and the wedding plans.

Contrary to rumours that they had dated for four years, THE INK can authoritatively report that Patrick Edet only got to know the lady when she invited him to minister at her programme in May last year. The programme was tagged “Understanding your Calling as a Music Minister.” It was held at Victory Chapel, University of Uyo Town Campus on May 7, 2017.

Prior to the programme, then Fr. Edet had featured the lady on his Grace and Inspiration radio show on Planet FM on May 3rd last year where she gave insights about the event. Further investigation revealed that this is where Patrick Edet struck a chord of understanding with Inyene.

Few weeks after the lady’s programme, he invited her to be the keynote speaker at his inaugural programme, ‘Youth Summit’ held in the later part of May same year. The lady obliged. Patrick Edet was still a Catholic priest at the time.

A source close to Patrick hinted our reporter that after the Youth Summit last year, the ex-priest was fascinated by the keynote speaker’s dexterity, spiritual awareness and intelligence hence started inviting her regularly to his programmes. According to him, the foundation of the relationship began from there and grew deeper, gradually, and has now culminated to marriage.

It was also gathered that while the wedding will be open to all in church, the reception will be strictly on invitation. This, according to an insider, is to control the crowd and ward off any breakdown of law and order owing to the sensitivity of the wedding.

The reception will be merged with a musical album release, it was gathered.

Meanwhile, an investigation shows that the said wife-to-be has deleted most of her personal pictures on Facebook ahead of the wedding.

Catholic Priest Who Resigned From Catholic Church Launches His Own Ministry

Catholic Priest Who Resigned From Catholic Church Launches His Own Ministry

The Nigerian priest, who resigned recently from the Catholic Church in Nigeria, has officially launched his own church in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
Patrick Edet, while serving in the Catholic Diocese of Uyo, ran a ‘Pentecostal-styled’ fellowship called Grace Family Outreach within the Catholic structure.
Mr. Edet, who had been a Catholic priest for more than 11 years, stunned the Catholic community in Akwa Ibom when he announced on a live radio programme on August 2 that he was leaving the Catholic Church to live his life as an independent cleric.
The Catholic Church later responded by stripping him of the rights and privileges enjoyed by priests and also barred Catholics from relating with him.
There has been a measure of excitement in Uyo over the recent launch of Mr. Edet’s ministry since his exit from the Catholic fold.
Some Catholic members, PREMIUM TIMES found out, have been attending the programme, even though the Catholic Bishop of Uyo Diocese, John Ayah, had earlier warned that any Catholic member who attends his programme or identifies with him (Mr Edet) in any way “does so at the risk of his or her Catholic faith and membership.”
