The friars of the British Province of Carmelites held their three-yearly electoral assembly at The Friars, Aylesford Priory this week.
Father Kevin Alban, O.Carm., was elected Prior Provincial. He will be advised by a Council consisting of Fathers Brendan Grady, Joseph Chalmers, Patrick O'Keeffe, and Patrick Fitzgerald-Lombard.
The new Provincial and Council will be confirmed in office by the Prior General at the Provincial Chapter in May.
The Carmelite Family congratulates Father Kevin and his Council, and prays for God's blessing on their future ministry.
