Catholic Church Suspends Kenyan Priest for Rapping During Services

A Roman Catholic diocese in Kenya has suspended a parish priest for rapping during Mass sermons, the BBC reported Monday.

The suspension bars Father Paul “Sweet Paul” Ogalo from saying Mass in public or administering Holy Communion for a year.

The sacred and the secular could not mix, Bishop Philip Anyolo of the Homa Bay Diocese in western Kenya told the BBC.

Anyolo said Ogalo can use rap to preach to young people – just not on the altar.

“We have suspended him for a year to give him time to reconsider his ways,” another diocesan official, Father Charles Kochiel, told the Catholic News Service in a report from Kenya Saturday.
