“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” …..HENRY PATRICK EDET! …
The founder of the Grace Family Global outreach and Radio Preacher in Akwa Ibom State, Reverend Father Patrick Henry Edet has resigned as a Catholic Priest.
Edet broke the news during his Grace and Inspiration radio show on Planet Radio 101.1FM on Wednesday.
The priest who announced that he should be addressed simply as Reverend Patrick Edet said it was time to move on and serve God in a different capacity, attributing his resignation to some bottlenecks within the Catholic Church which has conflicted his ministry and what God called him for.
He thanked the Catholic Church for the opportunity given him to get to the present height, describing the church as one of the most organised denomination but added that his ministry was beyond the boundary of the church as a missionary.
Reverend Edet who has been a priest for eleven years also announced that Grace Family Global Outreach will continue its programmes and activities as an independent ministry.
