A new baby in the wider Carmelite Family

From Carmelite News:

The British Province of Carmelites is delighted to give its warm congratulations to Matt Betts and his wife, Terri, on the birth and baptism of their first child, Joseph.

Matt is the Development Manager at the National Shrine of St. Jude, served by the Carmelite Friars in Faversham, Kent.

Matt's wife Terri (named after Carmelite nun St. Thérèse of Lisieux), a paediatric nurse, gave birth to baby Joseph on 18th February. He was baptised Joseph Henry Jack on 23rd March at the Betts' parish church, The Sacred Heart in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire.

Matt leads the team of lay workers at the National Shrine of St. Jude, and has been touched by the good-will messages he has received from pilgrims and Shrine supporters.

The young family are all doing well, and we keep them in our prayers.
