Jonathan Morris was the contributor of the priest and former New York pastor proposed to ABC News producer Kaitlyn Folmer of age 37, last month and are expected to marry at Saint. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. This comes a year after Morris of age 47 announced that he was leaving in the Catholic priesthood because he regretted not being able to marry and have a family. He asked Pope Francis to relieve him from his duties, saying his decision was not due to any existing relationships, which the Vatican has now granted him, freeing him to marry in the church. Last year, after much discernment, he left the priesthood, and he expressed very publicly then, that he was doing so with the hope of love, marriage, and family, Morris said. Soon after, Kaitlyn and Morris went for lunch.
Jonathan Morris married Kaitlyn Folmer
One month later, we went to dinner. Every day since we used to see each other or we used to spoken by phone. In November the last year, Pope Francis gave me the final dispensation from my vows and encouraged me to live with my faith publicly as a layperson. I see all of this including my 17 years as a priest gives me an amazing blessing from God. I just feel that I cannot wait to marry Kaitlyn and I like to be with her for the rest of my life. He says that he is going to continue his faith in God and his love for the Church in this new chapter of his life. A Fox News source tells that the engagement has become the talk of the town. Just over a year ago he announced that he was leaving in the priesthood and now he is engaged in getting married, they said. He is such a good man, and Kaitlyn is calm the lady.
