About 64 couples were last Saturday joined together in holy matrimony by Rt. Rev. Mons Anselm Umoren at the All Saints Catholic Church, Dutsen- Alhaji, in Bwari Area Council of the FCT.

The couples in appreciation gave N100,000 to the church for assisting them financially to get married.

Speaking during the wedding, the auxiliary bishop, His Lordship, Rt. Rev. Mons Anselm Umoren, told the couples to allow God be the pilot of their marriage lives as they learn to tolerate each other.

He blessed the marriages and prayed the couples have God's peace, joy and fruitfulness in their new homes.

Mr. Raymond Ugbeshe who spoke on behalf of the couples during thanksgiving mass, thanked God for giving them the opportunity to receive the sacrament of holy matrimony.

He expressed appreciation particularly to the auxiliary bishop, Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Daniel Agber and the entire parishioners for organizing the wedding their financial contributions.
