Group Faith Award – 3. Worth Abbey


On 23rd October members of the Group visited Worth Abbey.  We were met by Father Rod one of the community of 25 Roman Catholic monks who follow the Rule of St. Benedic, a Rule written 1,500 years ago but which still offers life-giving guidance to men and women today.


We were invited to take part in Compline which is the final church service (or Office) of the day in the Christian tradition of canonical hours.  Then the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts had an opportunity to ask questions of Father Rod who told us why he had become a monk, what it was like to be a monk and some information regarding life at the Abbey.
