In the words of the priest, he said; “Nobody should ever bring Bottled water before this altar as offertory for thanksgiving, I commend the man that brought a big goat for thanksgiving. let me warn you, nobody should ever bring Bottled water here for Thanksgiving, we were not at a burial ceremony please”.

According to The Nation, the worshipers of the church abandoned the church as the Priest’s action didn’t go down well with some parishioners, guests and family of those who came for thanksgiving as they all left the service. Am trying to figure out what exactly the priest meant, but to the best of my knowledge, a Catholic priest will not in a any way reject what was brought to the altar of God for thanksgiving, maybe there is misconception somewhere.
