to intercede for our brother Ged and the whole Church.
|Br. Ged places his hands in those of the Prior Provincial as he |

Br. Ged is part of the Yotk Carmelite Community and will continue to work alongside his brother friars in the University and Hospital Chaplaincies. We wish him many long years of service in Carmel and every joy and blessing.
