Catholic Church Marries Off 13 Women Together
The Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Gwagwalada, Abuja on Saturday played host to a wedding ceremony that saw 13 couples joined in holy matrimony.
The mass wedding was organised by the Catholic Charismatic Renewer (CCRN) for the parish
Each of the couples took turns to exchange their marital vows, supported by the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Clement Igyeseh.
Wondering how this works?
Mr Uche Olisaeke, Coordinator, CCRN explained that the prayer group decided to organise the wedding so as to encourage and assist the church to enrich members spiritually.
“We discovered that most of our members are not communicants and we decided to organise the mass wedding in collaboration with the parish priest,” he said.
The parish priest advised the couples to always invite Jesus into their marriages and give each other attention, affection, appreciation as well as forgiveness.
The cleric urged them not to allow disagreement among them to degenerate, adding that there was nothing wrong in apologising when necessary.
“A woman needs attention, affection and appreciation. Husband, love your wife and love originates from the heart.
“Of course, there will be challenges in marriage no matter what you do, but always invite Jesus into your marriage.
“Ensure you support each other financially, spiritually and emotionally among others.
“It is a woman who prays for the success of her husband and children and no man will like to marry a liability,” Igyeseh said.
He, therefore, encouraged wives to always endeavour to look attractive to their husbands, saying that the only ugly woman was the one who failed to upgrade her profile.
On behalf of the celebrators, Mrs Justina Ojor expressed gratitude to God for making the day possible, and equally appreciated the organisers of the wedding for their initiative.
That is quite an initiative.
