The Open Cloister offers a programme of residential retreats including both weekend and mid-week retreats as well as events for young people and families.
While most monasteries have only a ‘Monastery Guest House’ in which to offer hospitality (see ‘Monastic Guests‘), at Worth we also have ‘The Open Cloister’, offering retreats in a comfortable retreat house along with second to none hospitality.
If you seek a closer relationship with God, within the setting of a Catholic monastic community, you are most welcome.
Our retreat house is St Bruno’s. Unlike most other retreat houses, you will not just be staying in a pleasant building but also sharing in the experience of a living, working Christian community. All guests, whether staying for a few days or visiting for the day, are invited to join with the monastic community in the daily office of prayer and liturgy in the Abbey Church.
Although we are Catholic, we welcome everyone of all faiths and none – we hope to have something to offer all who are seeking God in the uncertainties of human life.
“Many thanks for an inspiring retreat with excellent hospitality”
