The Loss of Silence in Parish Churches Letter

The Loss of Silence in Parish Churches

Bishop Hugh Guilbert was Lord Abbot of the Benedictine community at Pluscarden Abbey in Scotland until his nomination to the See of Aberdeen by Pope Benedict XV1 on 4th June 2011.

On the Third Sunday of Advent, a Pastoral letter from Bishop Hugh was read at all Masses in the Diocese of Aberdeen, on the subject of the loss of silence in parish churches, Bishop Hugh tackles a somewhat overlooked and misunderstood issue very effectively, drawing out the value and relevance of silence in our churches.

Copies of this letter can be obtained from the Parish office.
