Welcome to St Mary of the Angels Catholic Church

St Mary of the Angels in Worthing is a community of faith. We believe in the love and forgiveness of God and spread the 'Good News' among those we meet. Our church, in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, has been serving the Worthing community since 1864.

Featured Noticeboard Entries

  • Samar's Aid Winter Appeal
    Daily on our TV screens we see the plight of destitute refugees who have left everything, desperate to escape the war in Syria. Again we have been asked to help with this never-ending tragedy. Our Justice & Peace Group has teamed up with English Martyrs to collect items that will go directly to refugees in Syria & Iraq. Working in partnership with the charity Samara's Aid (www.samarasaidappeal.org), boxes of aid are sent direct to our brothers and sisters in the camps.

    So what's needed? Adult & child's winter shoes, boots, wellies, trainers; winter clothing, sleeping bags, bedding, Moses baskets, baby bedding, travel cots; nappies, incontinence/sanitary products, soap, washing powder. New only underwear. Everything must be either new or, if used, in good condition.

    Please bring items to any Mass on Sun 25th September. On Tuesday 27th an army of volunteers will be needed after 10.00am Mass to sort the clothes in the Parish Centre. Pope Francis has said that “refugees are not numbers; they are people who have faces, names, stories & need to be treated as such.”
    Please do help.
  • A Work of Art by Maurice Lindars, WSAS
    Maurice has very kindly offered to raffle this painting, executed by his own hand, to raise funds for the parish. We are most grateful. Raffle tickets will be available from next Sunday (when the painting will be on view) and the draw will take place on Sunday 9th October.

    Please be generous in purchasing raffle tickets for this high-quality art work.
  • Young Adults Group
    Fr Terry is keen to start a group for young adults (aged 18 - 30) in the parish. It will probably meet monthly and will include opportunities for faith-sharing and formation, food, prayer, and social time. If you fit the age bracket and are interested, please send an email to ppworthing@gmail.com.
    The group can start small, if necessary, and grow bigger in time. Perhaps older parishioners could pray for the success of such a group?
  • Jesus at the centre
    Keep your eyes fixed on Him who is your guide to the heavenly country, where He is leading you. What does it matter to you whether Jesus wishes to guide you to Heaven by way of the desert or by the meadow, so long as he is always with you and you arrive at the possession of a blessed eternity?
    Let us remember that the Heart of Jesus has called us not only for our own sanctification, but also for that of other souls. He wants to be helped in the salvation of souls.
