Sidhartha Mallya Becomes a Certified Church Priest!
New Delhi, Jun 26 (Agencies): This is something which no one on the planet could have predicted. You have seen him handling corporate affairs, partying hard with girlfriends and attending all those glamour events. But now, he has added a few more real life roles in his kitty, perhaps on his own discretion.
The heir of the UB Group, Sidhartha Mallya has revealed to the world that he is a certified ordained priest of the Universal Life Church. All of which simply means that he is now good enough by law to perform all the functions of the clergymen.
The formal announcement from Mallya Jr came via his twitter updates which precisely read, “My certificate confirming that I’ve been ordained…Can now legally call myself the Rev Mallya!!”
He also tweeted a short list of his new rights and duties, “Apparently I can perform weddings, funerals, baptisms, blessings, & preach, teach and hold meetings... Joey did it in ‘Friends’!!!”
The ULC is a religious organization which states that anyone can become a minister without having to go through the pre-ordination process required by other religious faiths.
ULC ministers are authorized by the church to officiate weddings and funerals, perform baptisms or verbal baby naming ceremonies, hold services and other sacraments and rites.
The certification means that he can now perform all the functions of a clergyman.
All ministers in the ULC are also authorized and encouraged to ordain others as ministers in the church.
The ordaining minister informs the home church of the ordination and the new minister's information is added to the official church records.
