    Abuja: Catholic church snubs terrorists, wed 80 couples

    Parishioners of St Sylvester Catholic Church, near Abuja in Nyanya Karu local government area of Nasarawa state at the weekend snubbed Boko Haram terrorists and packaged a mass wedding ceremony for 80 parishioners of the church.    
    Ewache John Ajefu, public relations officer of the church in a press statement said it was indeed a day of joy for parishioners of  St. Sylvester Catholic Church to wed 80 couples in a sacrament of matrimony.
    Ajefu said that the Catholic Bishop of Lafia Diocese, Most Reverend Dr. Mathew Ishaya Audu, coordinated the ceremony.
    His words: “The marriage ceremony and the Sacrament of Confirmation put together by the Parish Priest of St. Sylvester Catholic Church New Nyanya Rev(Fr)  Lawrence Soja Anyembugu were part of the key activities lined up for first pastoral visit of the Bishop to the Independent Mission.”
    Speaking at the occasion, the Bishop admonished the couples to cloth themselves with the love of Christ in order to have a sustainable marriage life, stressing that marriage without love is meaningless.
    Citing many examples of causes of breakage in marriage life, Bishop Mathew Audu called on them to avoid pitfalls that would lead to regrets, adding that exemplary Christian life was key to successful marriage.
