Not more than two hundred couples walked down the aisle on the same day at Saint Theresa’s Catholic Church, Uzoakwa, Ihiala in Ihiala Council Area in Anambra State.
The biannual mass wedding held on Friday, December 18, was presided over by the Auxiliary Bishop of Umuahia, Diocese, Most Reverend Dr. Michael Ukpong.
In his homily during the Pontifical High Mass, Most Reverend Ukpong described a proper marriage as one that shows unity in Christ and Church.

Addressing the gathering during the reception, the Anambra State Governor’s wife, Dr Ebelechukwu Obiano represented by the Transition Committee Chairman of Ihiala Local Government Area, Mr Jude Obiwuru defined the wedding as a great thing aimed at channelling the minds of the couples to raising Godly children, who will be a good ambassador of the state.
