On 28 December, gathered at their Provincial Chapter at the Convent of Sainte-Marie veux, the friars of the Province of France elected fr Michel LACHENAUD as their Prior Provincial for a second term. The Master of the Order, fr Bruno Cador has confirmed the election and fr Michel has accepted.
Born in Paris in 1944, fr Michel made his first profession in the Order in 1966 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1971. He has been a missionary in Africa, specifically in Cameroun for many years. He was the socius to his predecessor and subsequently the vicar of the province after his appointment as bishop.
We felicitate with him and wish a successful tenure in office.
