Frs Bruce Clark and Nelinho Ferreira Soares have been elected by the Carmelites in Timor-Leste to form the Timor-Leste Council for the next 3 years. Together with Fr Carlito Da Costa Araújo (Provincial Delegate for Timor-Leste) they will share responsibility for fostering the growth of the Order in Timor-Leste, the pastoral care of the Carmelites and managing day-to-day affairs.
Fr Carlito is also one of the formators for the simply professed friars. Fr Bruce is also Director of Novices and Fr Nelinho is Chaplain to the nation's Police Force. Our prayerful congratulations are with these brothers as they begin their ministry.
