Nigerian Priest Who Resigned From Catholic Church Reportedly Launches 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.


Mr. Edet on September 1 launched a “mega revival” programme in Uyo, using his outreach.


Some Catholic members 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.”


The eight-day programme, which he tagged “The Great Awakening”, is currently holding in a city hall and has been attracting large crowds daily.
He has also erected billboards at strategic locations within the city to announce the programme which is his first major public outing since he quit the Catholic Church in August.

  10. I think its not about money. If he were, he will remain as a priest.
    Have u seen a poor priest?
    They are the richest clerics.
    I believe, he is living out His conviction. He left, cause he doesn't want to go against the doctrine.
    You all should not be quick to judge, especially a cleric.

    1. Thank you so much for this comment. People are too quick to judge what if he is on d right part just what if.... Everyone should face their calling and allow others be...

    2. Thank you HIGHLY FAVORED!You are definitely full of wisdom.Cathokic priests are quietly rich people who don't make noise same as the church .I am of the opinion that he has discovered some Truth that does not tally with Catholic doctrines,he doesn't wanna seem rebellious hence the need to step out.

    3. But you have also been quick to judge that he is not after money. Are you in his head and heart? No matter how rich a priest can be can he be as rich as a mega international church pastor? Only God knows the truth and will reveal all. He has just started, Bible says by their fruits we shall know them.

    4. Anonymous 05.04 ,calm down. What if his church never becomes a mega International Church? I think he should be left alone to live his life. Irrespective of what his motives are. We all leave paid employment to start something of our own so why can't he? Conviction or no conviction, as long as we will all independently account for our lives before God, let us at least live it first.

    5. Shut the fuck up pls! Come so i can school you on the different types of priests we have in the Catholic church.... The comfortable ones are allowed to own lands, cars etc.. Not every priest takes the oath of poverty.. Idiot!

  12. I'm not sure I understand this. The report here says "through his outreach". This same outreach he's been at while in the catholic church. It is not an official declaration na

  13. The message of the gospel and church administration; which is now more important. People talking what they do not know
