Rt. Rev. Dom Stephen Ortiger RIP

Worth School

The School community came together this morning to mark the passing of Fr Stephen who died peacefully on Saturday 27 January among his monastic brethren after a short illness. Fr Stephen was diagnosed with terminal cancer only two weeks ago, and the disease advanced very quickly.

Head Master Mr Stuart McPherson said: “The School we have today owes much to his service as Head Master from 1983 to 1993, as Abbot from 1994 to 2002 and for many years as the monk chaplain in St Mary’s. May he rest in peace.”
