Catholic Priest Who Dumped Priesthood For Marriage, Dedicates His Child In Style [Photos]

Rev. Patrick Henry Edet, a former Catholic Priest who dumped priesthood two years ago, has dedicated his child at Grace Family aka Commonwealth of Champions, IBB Avenue in Akwa Ibom State.

In 2017, Henry who had been a priest for 11 long years, said he strongly felt the need to leave his calling so as to free his soul as it was affecting his personal relationship with God. He said:

“From today henceforth, I cease to be a Catholic Priest, in my spirit and in my soul. ​I forgive those who will criticize 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.”

Following his marriage to his wife, Iyene, in 2018, Henry dedicated their daughter christened Mbiet -Yaweh on Sunday, October 10, 2019.

The dedication ceremony was attended by the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mr Udom Emmanuel.
