Welcome Ministry




Parishioners who are part of the Welcome Ministry at Worth were invited to a retreat held in Compass House on one of two Saturdays in November 2016. They attended Mass and Midday Prayers and heard two outside speakers, David Wills and Jack Regan, talk about the 'New Evangelisation'. They stressed the challenges which the New Evangelisation presents both to those already in the Church and the importance of encouraging and welcoming new people from outside. The day ended with a delicious lunch. Everyone appreciated the opportunity to come together and learn a new way of thinking about our role in the Church. (Report by Ali Ambridge)

Altar Servers

Altar servers  

Altar Servers assist in the liturgy, and thus engage the hearts and minds of young people in the liturgical action giving them an intimate insight into the workings of worship. The Abbey has a full team of servers affiliated to the Guild of St Stephen and the First Mass of Sunday (Saturday Vigil Mass) has a regular list of servers.

Servers can be boys or girls who have made their first communion at eight years of age. Training is mostly while serving, and the attempt is made to gradually increase a young person's responsibilities in this ministry.
