Today the Community rejoices that, twenty five years ago, Abbot Giles was first elected to the abbatial office thagiles1t he has held since (with an interlude 2010-13). At Mass today we shall sing the three hymns chosen by our abbot for his service of abbatial blessing in 1990. Please join us in giving thanks to God for all the blessings showered upon us through the ministry of Abbot Giles.
