Elections of Prior Provincial & Provincial Council

The British province of Carmelite Friars gathered here at Aylesford to begin their XVth provincial chapter. This first part of the chapter is a time of discernment as the friars elect those who will lead them over the next three years. Discerment was led by Fr Quinn Connors, O.Carm., a friar of the Chicago province. We reflected on the calls of Elijah and Elisha, and upon the models of authority and responsibility they exercised. The results of the elections are as follows.

Prior Provincial.  Fr Wilfrid McGreal, O.Carm.

1st Councillor:    Fr Jospeh Chalmers, O.Carm.
2nd Councillor.   Fr Brendan Grady, O.Carm.
3rd Councillor.    Fr Kevin Melody, O.Carm.
4th Councillor.    Fr Damian Cassidy, O.Carm.

Please pray for these brothers as the minister to the friars and collaborators of the British Province of Carmelites.

They will be confirmed in office by the Prior General at the second part of the Chapter in Easter week.
