“Ni mapenzi ya Mungu” – Catholic priest weds lover in beautiful ceremony

Yesterday, wedding guests were treated to a one-of-a-kind wedding of an ordained Catholic priest who married after defecting to the Catholic Charismatic church, a Roman Catholic splinter group.

Reverend Father Edwin Gathang’i Waiguru married Margaret Wanjira Githui in a colorful ceremony on Sunday at Michael’s Pot Gardens in Ikinu Githunguri.

Hundreds of the couple’s family and friends attended the wedding. On the same day, the Father was ordained as a Roman Catholic priest.

Father Waiguru said after being sent to preach in North and South America, he felt the need to marry and have a family.

When he returned to Kenya, he decided to marry in a traditional ceremony. The couple was blessed with two children.

He was ordained again as a Charismatic priest and also solemnized his marriage. He said he can now say he has lived to his calling of priesthood.

“I am very happy. To my wife, I promise to love you always,” he said.

The ordination ceremony was presided over by Bishop Patrick Mulau of Kirinyaga Charismatic church who said his church is solely Roman Catholic but differs only on the sacrament of Marriage where priests from his Church marry.
