The death is announced of one of our remaining monks, Father Benedict Seed OSB on Sunday 19 April in Glasgow Royal Infirmary. Fr Benedict had retired to St Joseph’s (Little Sisters of the Poor) in Robroyston, Glasgow and sadly succumbed to Covid-19.
Father Benedict was an Old Boy who went into the monastery after school and was ordained in 1956. He was a very keen beekeeper, groundsman and a member of the Abbey fire brigade. He taught Science and Maths at the Abbey and was the Lovat housemaster for many years (1972 – 1985) after which he became headmaster.
Father Benedict’s funeral will take place at Brora on Friday 24 April at 1 o’clock (limited to 6 people due to the Covid-19 situation). Chris Stephenson will represent the Old Boys Association at his funeral.

Requiescant in Pace Father Benedict
