Father Cutié To Marry Fiancée in Two Weeks

Talk about moving quickly down the aisle! The Miami Herald is reporting that scandal-ridden priest Father Alberto Cutié will marry his fiancée, Ruhamma Canellis, in just two short weeks.

35-year-old guatemalteca Canellis recently hired several off-duty police officers to work security at the private wedding in the hopes of keeping the prying eyes of the paparazzi and public at bay. The ceremony is set to take place at an unnamed Episcopal church in the Miami area.

Shutterbugs looking to capture a shot of the affair at least know they can cross one Episcopal church off their list: Trinity Cathedral, the diocese's flagship church where Cutié and Canellis switched from the Roman Catholic to Episcopalian denomination.

The popular 40-year-old Puerto Rican priest, known to many as "Father Oprah," made headlines in May after the magazine TVyNotas published pictures of him canoodling with a woman on the beach, in clear violation of his vow of celibacy.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
