Rev. Fr. Edet who Resigned From Priesthood has been Expelled From The Catholic Church

Patrick Edet, an Uyo-based priest who earlier this month resigned from priesthood, has been excommunicated from the Catholic Faith. The priest had resigned saying he wanted to be free. According to the embattled Pentecostal-style priest, being a priest is like a restriction in a box and that “You cannot know God beyond that box. You cannot express God beyond that box. And any attempt for you to go beyond that box brings you label. “The reason I am doing this is that I want to be right with God first. I want to go to heaven when I die,”

However, the Catholic Diocese of Uyo has reacted by imposing what could be described as the severest punishment known to the church which is excommunication.
John Ayah, the Bishop of Uyo Diocese has therefore advised all Catholics to stay away from the embattled priest.
“I advise that no Catholic member should approach him to obtain any service or guidance henceforth in the name of the Church,” the bishop said, adding that the Church disassociated itself from the activities of Mr. Edet.
“Any Catholic 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,” he said.
