Kaitlyn Folmer and Jonathan Morris’ Relationship
Jonathan Morris, once a pastor in New York, is currently the religion contributor at Fox News. He made headlines a year ago when he left the Catholic priesthood because he regretted “not being able to marry and have a family.”
He said there were no existing relationships that led him to leave priesthood. Pope Francis relieved him of his duties after Morris followed due process, allowing him to marry in church. Shortly after leaving the priesthood, Jonathan Morris met Kaitlyn Folmer.
“Soon after, Kaitlyn and I went to lunch. One month later, we went to dinner. Every day since, we have seen each other or spoken by phone,” Morris said. “In November of last year Pope Francis gave me the final dispensation from my vows and encouraged me to live my faith publicly as a lay person.”
Morris further added, “I see all of this – including my 17 years as a priest – as an amazing blessing from God. I just can’t wait to marry Kaitlyn and be with her for the rest of my life. I will continue to express my faith in God and my love for the Church in this new chapter of my life.”
They reportedly got engaged last month before making it public. But it appears the couple’s colleagues were in the know, as sources close to them told media outlets how happy they were to know about Morris’ and Folmer’s engagement.
Folmer and Morris haven’t revealed a date yet given the pandemic. However, they reportedly will tie the knot at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City.
