Wedding enthusiasts bore witness to a most unconventional union that of a catholic priest. Sasa, tuseme nyege ndizo zilimtuma?
Reverend Father Edwin Gathang’i Waiguru, an ordained Catholic priest, took a remarkable leap of faith, transitioning to a Roman Catholic splinter group known as the Catholic Charismatic Church.
This transformation culminated in a breathtaking ceremony that left many in awe.
It was on a Sunday, amidst the vibrant hues of a colorful matrimony, that Catholic Priest Waiguru sealed his union with Margaret Wanjira Githui at the enchanting Michael’s Pot Gardens in Ikinu Githunguri.
The occasion was graced by a multitude of well-wishers from both sides, family and friends alike.
What sets this union apart is the fact that Father Waiguru was ordained as a Roman Catholic priest on the very same day.
The priest had embarked on a spiritual journey that saw him preach across North and South America, a journey that profoundly affected his perspective on life.
In the wake of his extensive travels, Father Waiguru realized the depth of his desire to experience the joys of marriage and family life.
Upon returning to Kenya, he chose to express this longing through a traditional ceremony that bound him to Margaret.
Their union soon flourished with the blessings of parenthood, and they were blessed with two children.
Subsequently, Father Waiguru experienced a unique twist of fate, as he was ordained once more, this time as a Charismatic priest.
It was during this period that he chose to solemnize his marriage.
With this extraordinary journey, he firmly believes that he has fully embodied his priestly calling.
In a heartfelt declaration, Father Waiguru expressed his profound joy and unwavering commitment to his beloved wife.
“I am very happy. To my wife, I promise to love you always,” he declared.
The ordination ceremony that marked this captivating transition was presided over by Bishop Patrick Mulau of the Kirinyaga Charismatic Church.
He noted that while his church remains rooted in Roman Catholic principles, they differ in their approach to the sacrament of Marriage.
In the Kirinyaga Charismatic Church, priests are free to marry, a practice that distinguishes them from their Roman Catholic counterparts.
