Welcome to Worth Abbey — a community of Roman Catholic Benedictine monks near Crawley, West Sussex.

Our vocation as monks is truly to seek God. This website offers insights into how we are responding to this call; and I hope it will encourage you in your love of God and your neighbour. Read Abbot Mark’s welcome message…

Prayers for HM Queen Elizabeth II

Almighty God,
You are the author and sustainer of all human life;
grant that your servant, Elizabeth our Queen,
whom you granted a long and happy reign as Monarch of these lands
may be forgiven her sins and rewarded with that eternal life
promised to all those born again
in the water of baptism and power of your Spirit.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit
God, forever and ever,
Amen

Please join us at Office and Mass to pray for HM Queen Elizabeth II at the regular times.
