Nigeria: Catholic Church Excommunicates Nigerian Priest Who Resigned Recently
The Catholic Church in Nigeria has excommunicated a priest who recently quit the Church.
The Church said it was by the notice stripping the priest of all privileges accruing to a leader of the Church.
Patrick Edet, who served in the Catholic Diocese of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, had announced over a local radio station on August 2 that he was leaving the Catholic Church so he could be ‘free to serve God the way he wanted.’
Before he left Catholic Church, Mr. Edet ran a Pentecostal-style fellowship that attracted a huge crowd in the city of Uyo.
