The Nigerian Reverend sister started trending after she found love and retired from her devotional duties as a member of the Catholic convent, so as to get married to her boo who is a Nigerian officer. Shortly after, more wedding ceremony photos surfaced of the Catholic Reverend Sister turned bride, smiling and blushing, in different traditional wedding attires.

Many Nigerians flooded her page and other social media space to shower the couple with congratulatory messages and best wishes in their new matrimonial journey together, some left sarcastic messages while others expressed shock and disbelief.
Meanwhile the lady was said to have posted her story, “I have served God diligently as a servant of God, I became a Rev. sister 7 years ago, and one day, I met this man in the catholic hospital where I was working as a nurse, he was a patient and I was one of the nurses who attended to him, from there we got talking.
“When he became fine, he asked for my phone number that he would like to pay me a visit to thank me for being so nice to him while treating him, so I gave him.
“He came visiting me at the convent one day when I was off duty, we talked for a long time, talked about ourselves, got to know each other the more and since then we became friends and we didn’t stop talking on phone. It got deep when we started sharing our personal lives with each other and one day, on phone, he told me, ‘he loves me.’
“Normally, I would have reacted as though it’s a brotherly sisterly love you stuff, but the way he said it, it was so romantic and calm and sent shivers all over my body, I haven’t ever felt that way in my life neither have I ever known a man till I met Jude.
“Long story short, we started dating, it was a difficult decision at first as I didn’t know how to face the world and how my fellow sisters in the convent would see me.
“We are both madly in love, this wasn’t infatuation, this is love, we love each other. Then he proposed to me one day, I didn’t even think twice and after accepting, I was really scared of what the reality of quitting being a sister to become a married woman would be. Well, after all battles and odds, I followed my heart, I retired and now, I’m married.”
