On the 11th of February, Carmelites from Britain, Ireland, and Indonesia, gathered in the chapel of the Carmelite nuns in Thicket, for the ordination to the diaconate of Br. Ged Walsh. Ged has always had a deep devotion to Our Lady of Lourdes and it is fitting that his ordination was celebrated on her feast
