Nwobodo abandons Anglican, re-weds in Catholic Church
Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and his wife, Monica sponsored the marriage in fulfillment of requirements demanded by the Catholic Church.
The marriage took place at the Bishops’ Court, Independence Layout, Enugu.
The governor thanked God for the successful wedding and prayed that the union grows from strength to strength.
In a sermon, Rev. Fr. Peter Damian Akpunonu recalled the past cordial relationship between Chief Jim Nwobodo and the Catholic Church especially when he was the governor of old Anambra State.
He added that the long association informed the decision of Nwobodo to join Catholic Church, having been impressed by his association with the church.
Rev. Fr. Akpunonu thanked Chief Nwobodo for having the courage to embrace Catholic Church.
In a brief remark, Senator Nwobodo observed that he felt fulfilled having joined the Catholic Church fully, describing it as a home coming and a spiritual thing. He assured that he would remain in the church which he said he trusts and believes in.
