Much has been enjoyed and much is to come
Worth Abbey Pilgrims have run some unforgettable events from Easter egg hunts to guided walks, to special services in the Abbey Church and lectures on Benedictine spirituality. We have been consistently overwhelmed at the popularity of these events. A particular highlight was hosting the Relics of St Bernadette in October 2022 as part of the UK tour.
We are limited in what events and activities can be provided by our imagination and volunteer effort. If you have an idea for an event, please share it – and consider lending your support to someone else’s idea so that we can make it a reality.
