On Sunday evening the community and some of our friends gathered for another joyful celebration. Fr Joseph celebrated his thritieth anniversary of ordination. What a gift Joseph has been to the Carmelite Order and to the Church. He is a much loved member of the community here. Also celebrating a significant date was Br. Paul who hoped to be getting his bus pass for his birthday but recent legislation has delayed that for now. Paul can be quite camera shy - but I will try and find an image of him and put it up on his actual birthday. Great fun was had by all as we played boules and ate and drank in our private river garden. Thankfully our brothers regularly provide an excuse to celebrate and have fun!
