Funeral of Mgr. Hugh Boyle

On 29 October 2014, Archbishop Tartaglia presided at the funeral Mass for Mgr. Hugh Boyle, a long-serving priest of the Archdiocese, who was well-known and well regarded both in the Archdiocese and beyond. The funeral Mass was held in St. Andrew’s Cathedral where Mgr. Boyle had been Administrator in the 1980s, and the Archbishop was joined by numerous priests from the Archdiocese and elsewhere, and by Archbishop Emeritus Conti and Bishop Peter Moran, the Bishop Emeritus of Aberdeen, both of whom had been in seminary with Mgr. Boyle. The music of the liturgy was led by the St. Mungo Singers and was wide ranging, from the plainchant Requiem Aeternam, Agnus Dei and In Paradisum, to Fr. Frank Duffy’s setting of Psalm 129, the Taizé “Eat this Bread”, and the Mozart Ave Verum, as well as familiar hymns, finishing with the Lourdes hymn “Immaculate Mary”. In his homily, Archbishop Tartaglia extended his sympathy to Mgr. Hugh’s family. We should all take comfort, he said, from the amazing hope expressed in the First Reading from the Book of Job, and we should pray that Mgr. Hugh would be granted the vision of God for which Job prayed. Mgr. Hugh was ordained in 1962 in the Lateran Basilica in Rome. He had served as a priest for 52 years in many parishes of the Archdiocese. The second strand of his service to...
