Worth Abbey is an English Benedictine monastery, a sanctuary where the Gospel of Christ is expressed through a community life of prayer and service.
At its heart is a community of Catholic monks who follow the life-giving guidance of the Rule of St. Benedict. The fusion of daily life with the wisdom of the Rule gives monasteries like Worth a powerful energy.
Monks seek to live out the Gospel not as isolated individuals (modern individualism is foreign to Benedict’s way of thinking), but as members of a community. Our common love for Christ unites us on the journey to our eternal home.
