On-line shop highlights - 5

Prayer card to Saint Gerard - for Motherhood
Our new on-line shop includes not only a number of religious gifts and souvenirs connected with Saint Jude, but there is so much more on offer too.

For the next few weeks, we're going to show our blog and Facebook friends some special items you can purchase from our new shop.

This time we want to highlight the various prayer cards for many special saints. We have a massive range of prayer cards and booklets available at the shop. Most of our stock are exclusively designed by the Shrine to help raise money for the Shrine and the work of the Carmelites in Britain and worldwide.

Our shop can be found here and prayer cards like those pictured can be found, here.

New Prior Provincial announced

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.
