Redemptorists elect new leaders

The Redemptorists of the Baltimore Province have elected a new leadership team to guide the province through the next four years.

Fr. Kevin Moley, C.Ss.R.

Father Kevin Moley will be the new provincial. Father Frank Jones will serve as vicar provincial, and Father Thomas Travers will be the second consultor.

Father Patrick Woods, who is ending his second term as provincial and 18 years in various leadership positions within the province, will step down in January.

The Redemptorists of the Baltimore Province maintain their headquarters in Brooklyn, NY, but have retained the name “Baltimore Province” to honor their beginnings as an independent province in that city in 1850.

Fr. Frank Jones, C.Ss.R.
