Thirteen couples were joined together in holy matrimony on Saturday in Gwagwalada, Abuja. The event of the mass wedding took place at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. This wonderful event was presided over by the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Clement Igyeseh, who also advised the newly wedded couples to be faithful to their marital vows.
Igyeseh, who was also the chief celebrant, gave the advice at a Mass wedding organised by the Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCRN) for the parish on Saturday in Gwagwalada. He further advised them to always invite Jesus into their marriages and give each other attention, affection, appreciation as well as forgiveness.

The cleric urged them not to allow disagreement among them to degenerate, adding that there was nothing wrong in apologizing when necessary.
“A woman needs attention, affection and appreciation. Husband, love your wife and love originates from the heart.
“Of course, there will be challenges in marriage no matter what you do, but always invite Jesus into your marriage.
“Ensure you support each other financially, spiritually and emotionally among others.
“It is a woman who prays for the success of her husband and children and no man will like to marry a liability,” Igyeseh said.
He, therefore, encouraged wives to always endeavour to look attractive to their husbands, saying that the only ugly woman was the one who failed to upgrade her profile.
Uche Olisaeke, Cordinator, CCRN congratulated the celebrators, saying that the prayer group decided to organise the mass wedding so as to encourage and assist the church to enrich members spiritually.
“We discovered that most of our members are not communicants and we decided to organise the mass wedding in collaboration with the parish priest,” he said.
Each of the couples took turns to exchange their marital vows.
