The parish priest of Worth Abbey Parish is a member of Worth Abbey Benedictine Monastery. The main work of the twenty two monks in residence is the praying and studying of scripture. Every day the monks meet six times in the Abbey Church for public prayer and the Eucharist. Parishioners and members of the public are welcome to join them at all these offices, for which orders of service are provided.
