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.
Our website allows you to watch Catholic Mass online on our live Mass webcam. Outside the Mass or service times you can view the tabernacle webcam in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel for online adoration. The webstream can be found here.

- Faith in the Crucified One of Good Friday
Behold, Jesus Christ crucified, who is the only foundation of our hope; He is our mediator and advocate; the victim and sacrifice for our sins. He is goodness and patience itself; His mercy is moved by the tears of sinners, and he never refuses pardon and grace to those who ask it with a truly contrite and humbled heart.
St Charles Borromeo (1538 – 1584)
- Get Involved: St Vincent De Paul Society
The St Vincent De Paul Society (SVP) offers freindship and practical help to people in need, whoever they are and whatever the need.

If SVP members can’t provide the particular help needed, they may be able to help find it.

The prayer to St Michael is recommended for use at this time
Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle;
be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil;

by the power of God, thrust down to hell Satan, and all wicked spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
