A warm welcome from Abbot Mark Barrett, Abbot of Worth Abbey
I want to introduce you to the Worth Abbey Pilgrims and to invite you to join our fellowship group. The Worth Abbey Pilgrims is a friendship and information network centred at Worth, enabling us to stay in touch with what is happening here and to become involved in a range of activities and events at Worth Abbey throughout the year.
Through the Pilgrims network , we aim to give a warm welcome in the Benedictine tradition of hospitality to all our existing friends and to those who are discovering Worth for the first time, as well as offering opportunities for deepening our Christian faith and travelling together in prayer and service.
