Light of the North: Summer 2023

Welcome to the summer issue of the Light of the North. You’ll find lots of news in the magazine from around the Diocese including Klaudiusz Mozolewski’s ordination to the Permanent Diaconate, this year’s Diocesan pilgrimage to Pluscarden Abbey, the annual Scalan Mass and a very special day for our French Community. Also, Bishop Hugh Gilbert OSB, in his letter, demonstrates the presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of St Benedict in, ‘A Saint for Summer.’

In addition, Eileen Grant reflects on what we know about angels in her article, ‘Angels, messengers from God’ and Pam Millar discusses what it’s like to be a Volunteer Ship Visitor. Not least, Dr Shelagh Noden asks the question, ‘Who or what were the Cecilians?’ and Margaret Bradley offers readers a selection of four Banchory parishioners’ favourite soup recipes with a recipe for cheesecake to follow!
