    My family who live in Worthing told me about Mass online – so I have “been to Mass today” from France.
    Thank you so much.

    Dear Father Terry
    You are keeping us going and I have passed the site on to other Catholic friends. Really appreciate your clear diction as I have a hearing impediment. For so many people you are the highlight of the day. May God bless you for your good work.

  3. Margaret-Mary Campkin

    It’s comforting and uplifting to be able to join in the mass at this strange time.
    Thank you.
    As Anne Ward suggested an online Taize service would be lovely.

  4. Hi Terry, thanks for your Masses. I am enjoying joining in with you. How about some services such as Taizè evenings? I am happy to prepare some we could put on line, particularly for Lent/Easter, my diary has suddenly become empty! Anne

      Dear Father Terry,
      Thank you once again for the beautiful Mass on the feast of the Annunciation which i managed to watch while currently in lock down in Spain.
      I will continue to pray for you and all St Mary’s parishioners. May God and his blessed Mother protect us all
      God bless,
      Maureen Robertson

  6. Thanks for live streaming of the Mass while we are going through this time with Covid-19 and cannot be present in person. It gives me a great connection.

  7. Maureen Campbell

    Thank you so much for the online Mass today. It was a delight to find it and hope to be able to join in again. It was particularly pleasurable as my Mother and father married in your church many years ago. I normally worship in Crawley.
    Once again thank you.

  8. Thank you so much for providing this for us! I have been so sad that I cannot go to Mass in my own community, and was so pleased to join yours. I cried on and off throughout the service, and now feel connected again, comforted
    and strengthened, and lifted up. God bless you and everything that you are offering. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

  9. No Mass today at St David’s RC’ Mold in North Wales as elsewhere.
    Many thanks Father for televising your Mass at St Mary of the Angels. It was a joy to have such a spiritual and familiar time away from these unsettling times.
    Diolch(thanks) as we say in Wales. I look forward to tuning in again.

  10. Thank you Father Terry for giving us the opportunity to attend Mass in our home today and Spiritually receive Our Lord.
    We greatly appreciate this method of worship in the absence of Church gathering.
    Father David Rae married us over 30 years ago. May his soul rest in peace.

  11. Watched for first time today – picture and sound quality excellent. Mass itself was wonderful and inspirational. The simplicitely of the homily message shone through and the humour which interspersed the “Jesus, remember me…” at the end brought a tear to my eye. This and other like it are wonderful resources and are clearly going to become increasingly used in our current circumstances. God Bless and Peace Always x

  12. I am temporally housebound having had an operation on my foot. It was great when I found your website and was able to be present at Mass if only on my computer this Sunday, I will certainly also listen and take part at Mass next Sunday also. Thank you all very much. John Barlow Codnor Derbyshire.

  13. Continued grateful thanks for letting we use you Mass Site. I was desperately ill with sepsis in Oct and my daughter telephoned Fr Terry to request a prayer. Thank you, IGod left me a while longer and I intend to continue attending Mass daily. Also
    Petition I make constantly, has started to show signs of My dear Lord answering it. I often pray in St Mary’s at all hours day and night it gives me comfort and the right atmosphere to talk with my saviour. Thank you again. May God Bless you.

  14. Stella Christon

    When I can’t get to weekday Mass, I like to surf the Net to find a Mass I can “attend”. I found your site today for the first time. I found it so reverent. Not always is the sound quality on these sites good and sometimes there’s a time lag. But yours is spot on! Thank you for this service.

  15. As I was not well I was unable to go to my parish Church of St. Wulstan’s Fleetwood, Lancashire. It was lovely to share Mass on line with you. I will let other people in my parish know about you site, so that those who are housebound can share Mass with you.

  16. I was unable to attend Church this morning so a quick google search led me here. Thank you for todays service 26/05/19 – 0830am

  17. Maureen Downing

    Good Morning Father Terry,

    Thank you for your thought provoking sermon at 10.30am mass on sunday 3/3/19. I found it related to my studies and opened up a door to look inside my thoughts and reflect on who I am? to look within myself not to be so quick to make judgements, and to self-reflect. Coming into Lent is a time of reflection and abstinence and prayer. Please pray for me and give me the strength to give my time onto others in a patient caring way.

    God Bless you and your wonderful team

    Maureen Downing

  18. Patricia Middleton

    Such a wonderful heartfelt thank you for allowing me to share in Holy Mass. i am housebound except when when people are free to take me
    With them to Mass and cannot always get ready in time for lifts.
    I feel such joy in taking part in Mass and try to join you every day. God Bless you I remember you in my night prayers.

  19. Eileen Reynolds

    Dear People of St Mary of the Angels
    Many thanks for sharing your Mass this morning.
    You have done a great job with redecorating your church since I last looked.
    Best wishes

  20. At 3pm today, having been unable to get to my local Good Friday liturgy, I looked for somewhere that might be live-streaming it. I was delighted to find your site and watched and participated throughout the liturgy. Thank you so much for this wonderful facility. I’m sure I will visit you again!

  21. Hilary Wilkinson

    Greetings to the Catholic Parish in Worthing. I am a disabled lady from Nottingham, unable to get out today due to the overnight snow. This morning I decided to look online for Sunday Mass, so I could join with fellow Catholics our amazing faith. It was such a lovely service, clear sound and thank you father for your lovely singing. Now I know it is Sunday today! God less you all.

  22. I really appreciate you opening your church to everyone in this way. I am receiving treatment for breast cancer and not always able to attend Mass. This is the next best thing. I thank you and your parish most especially for your prayers for the sick and housebound. God bless.

  23. I found your church when looking for a service online.

    I enjoyed being with you this morning.

    I miss Holy Communion. I was wondering if Father might be able to give a virtual blessing to all of us who attend via the webcam? Just a thought.

    Thank you again and God Bless. See you next Sunday morning.

  24. Thank you Father for this great service. My wife is ill and not able to get to Mass. Its so wonderful for us to hear Mass most days and join in His celebration. This is a wonderful thing you are giving the World which goes out in Peace and draws people to love Our Lord.
    Thank you for organising and allowing this on line service for everyone. May God Bless you in every way.

  25. Unwell today, so unable to attend the Commemoration of the Lord’s Passion in my own parish. Delighted to find I had online options.

    Thank you – what a busy and vibrant parish and wonderful to see so many altar servers!

    With very best wishes for a Happy and Blessed Easter.

  26. Am I doing something wrong? We can see Mass but sound is completely absent.
    When we attend other sites there are no problems,


    1. Thanks for your comment Alan. Sadly over the Christmas period we lost the sound connection to our live broadcasts. This should now be back in place. Please do accept our apologies. Thanks and God bless you.

  27. Hi am a constant attendee of mass online as i live far from your parish and am based in London. so constantly watch mass since i found your website early 2015 but of the last couple of months whilst viewing online and listening to mass on iphone or on my computer or at families computer the sound quality has becoming very low even with volume turned up high. i have very good ears and have no hearing problems other people i know have also complained of problem. the sound quality is very low and one cant hear the priest speak its a very hard stretch even when i use my ear phones too its still low..this has never been a problem before. since you had the storm problems early this year and were down for a few sundays when it did come back online the sound quality was very low and hard to hear the priest speak or the readers. i dont know if the priest is wearing microphone or if location of microphones around the church has changed or reduced but the mass cant be heard can see the priest but the voice of priest and readers is very low. it appears you have a sound fault as it never used to be like this. I listen to music from computer and iphone and they all play loud but your online mass service is very very low in volume of sound. please please can this be resolved. i have been enjoying your mass even before the new priest who has a great singing voice took over from the old one..please resolve this many thanks. God bless you . take care

    1. Hi Chrissy, Thanks for your comment. We are working to resolve the sound problems. You are right this started from when the storm hit the church and we now need to replace some of the equipment to get the sound quality back to where it was. We are working to do this and hope to have something in place over the next few weeks. Thanks again and God bless you.

    1. Alan, thanks for your comment and thank-you for using our site. Yes, Mass will be online again shortly. Unfortunately an electrical storm knocked out the Internet broadcasts. Hoping to be fixed shortly. God bless you.

  28. Dear Father, Thank you for your heart lifting Mass today, the site is excellent!!! not well so had mass from home, my prayers for you and the parish see you soon.

    God Bless

    Maureen. ( 2nd Sunday of Lent )

  29. Dear Friends in Worthing
    Many thanks for the Mass today, I need to rest at home, just caught the end of Mass and enjoyed singing along to the hymns.
    Eileen in south east London

  30. Thank you very much for fixing the webcast–I assume the problem was on your server but maybe it’s my computer and it’s my life that that’s been purged!!! to let in God’s holy light!!!! As an expat living in another country, I missed listening and participating in daily mass in my native tongue. God bless you and I will pray for you Father!

  31. I would just like to say Thank You to Fr Chris and to everyone who enables me to take part in the Mass most days. I have been housebound for four years and so am unable to attend my local parish. But Fr Chris really makes me feel at home as he always welcomes those joining in via the net. I want you to know that you’ve made a big difference in my life! So thanks again and a Happy Retirement, Father!

  32. Just wanted to say I watched the mass online which was dedicated to my mother Elizabeth Robertson (6/9/2015) Thank you Fr Chris and special thanks to Heidi who was so helpful in making it possible this meant so much to me. Will also be joining you for the early services this week.

  33. I have enjoyed being able to join in mass with you for the last few weeks as I have not been able to get to mass at my own church and it was so much like ours I felt so much at home.i love the little ones joining you father around the alter a real family occasion.thank you so much .

  34. I appreciate being able to watch Mass live when it is difficult to get to my own church. I find it a little distracting that the new Mass is not entirely followed however, such as “Behold the Lamb of God” and “for you and for many” rather than “all”. Other than that bit of feedback, I’m glad that you enable us at home to have access to the Mass. Thank you.

  35. Thank you . I just had a small operation and was unable to go to my own church for mass. I live in Barnsley I enjoyed the service very much.. Thank You

    I did not like the promotion of sales of the ladies cds on the alter during mass.
    She could have sang during mass but didnt. this was only a sales promotion and told us she had visited 60 other churches . ok she was giving a donation to the church but to me it was not correct.

    1. Maureen Robertson

      Dear Fr Terry and aĺl parishioners. I like so many others are now watching Mass on line.I just wanted to let you know what comfort it brings especially as so many are having to isolate. At least we can all be together in spirit and our prayers and sufferings offered up for each other and the world .May God keep you all safe .

  36. Michaela Overton

    Hello everybody, It was so nice to be welcomed and invited Saturday evening at the barbecue, which I believe was for Fr Chris’s 50th ordination celebration? You were all so blessed and that the holy spirit was with me when I spontaneously took a right turn into one of the roads along the seaside to meet up with you. You have been very friendly and that your kindness was appreciated. Please let me know what the weather is like, as the weather here in London keeps on changing from sunshine and turns to showers. I hope to meet when I visit Worthing again. Peace and love, Michaela Overton, Forest Hill, London SE23.

  37. Margarida Holden

    Thank you so much for letting me take part in mass via the net.
    Due to a health problem I have now been housebound for 5 weeks, but have never missed a mass thanks to the Mass online. In the hardest time I’ve been trough, this service has been my lifeline and made me feel like I am still part of the community.
    I couldn’t be grateful enough!
    God bless you all!

  38. Eileen Reynolds

    Dear Friends in Worthing
    Always a boon to join you for Mass when I can’t get out.
    Many thanks
    Eileen in south east London

  39. As I am unable to attend mass at present being able to join in via the web has given me the chance to still be part of the communion of the faith. Always enjoy the examples Fr Chris provides as the lead in to his homily always makes me smile. I would be lost without access to the website.

  40. I am from Canutillo Texas, just west of El Paso. My sister, Silvie Martinez, lives in Worthing with her partner, John Debringer of Tunbridge Wells. I last visited St Mary’s in 1999. Due to an accident Silvie suffered, I returned this January of 2015. We visited St Mary’s the evening of Jan. 14, to light a candle for our Father’s 85th birthday, then attended Sunday Mass where we were so warmly welcomed be parishioners, Josephine & Peter! As Sivie & John worked, I attended morning Mass. On my last Saturday, Jan.24, I made my last purchases at the gift shop, when realizing I did not have sufficient funds & credit cards weren’t accepted, Anne so graciously totaled my purchases & allowed me to leave with the promise that I would deposit the funds in the mail drop of the Rectory, which we did, & Father opened the door to receive them. My family & friends stateside have been blessed to receive rosaries, a photo of the church in each calendar, date planners & medals from St Mary of The Angels, & I have been so blessed to once again visit your wonderful church, and Silvie & John! Please keep them in your prayers! Until my next visit, God bless you this Lent & throughout your walk with Him. Cynthia

  41. From South West London it’s a joy to take part in your masses both on weekdays and on Sunday. I have been unable to go out since surgery to my foot in Nov. last and I will be thus so until the end of March so it’s a wonderful service you provide and the welcome from Fr. Chris to all those taking part online really brings into the church with you there. Thank you so very much.

  42. Always a pleasure to join you for Mass when I can’t go out, many thanks. I do like that reading from Samuel.

  43. Thank you so much for this website.At last I can feel part of the Mass.I have health problems and to be able to see and hear Mass again means so much to me. God Bless you all

  44. I am going to my great niece’s baptism today in Eastbourne so will miss the 5.50 mass that we usually attend. So lovely to watch the 10.30 mass online before we go.

  45. Thank you so much for this website. It is a blessing for those of us who long to attend mass but are unable to do so.

  46. Catherine Gray (nee HAUCK)

    I’m so glad that you have the Mass online. Living so far away, it gives me the opportunity to join you all in prayer, especially this coming Sunday when we celebrate the evening Mass in memory of my brother Stephan Hauck and my mother Hilda Hauck, both sorely missed. God Bless you all. x

  47. Why not update your Facebook profile picture with the Arabic letter for ‘N’? This is what ISIS are putting on the property of Christians in Iraq etc to identify them. This will show solidarity with our persecuted Christian brothers and sisters. Email me at and I’ll send you a picture. God bless.

  48. Eileen Reynolds

    Dear Friends

    I was a bit tired today and needed a break, but hated missing Pentecost, our church St William of York Forest Hill south east London will look amazing today I know. I was able to catch the second half of your Mass and it was much appreciated, thank you. Sorry that your sacristy was broken into, I hope everyone is OK, these things can be a shock. Poor man, who keeps doing this.

    best wishes


  49. tiffany lewis and ashton way

    We are catjolic born and raisef it is our only religion thsts awesome that you have mass online


  50. Maureen Catherine Downing

    Always enjoy Mass at your wonderful Church and hearing Father Chris saying mass when I visit from London a truly family congregation and lovely choir and singers.

    A hard working Nurse from Central London.

  51. Thank you for providing this wonderful service it was lovely to join in with your parishioners for Sunday mass I wiil certainly be looking in on a regular basis. Special thanks to the parishioner who mentioned about the flash for ipad it certainly worked for me. God bless to the little ones baptised today.

  52. Catherine Gray (nee Hauck)

    It was lovely to join you all at Mass today as it was dedicated to my mum, Hilda. Living 300 miles away, but still able to attend St. Mary's Church for Mass is a blessing. God Bless.


  53. Alan and Audrey Steer

    It was lovely to turn the computer on this morning and find that you were back on line.  We have missed you!!

    Best wishes,

    Audrey and Alan

  54. I am a nurse and had to be at work at 11am today, thanks to the webcam I managed to watch the first 25 minutes of the Mass with Bishop Kieron today, and got to see my daughter pick up her confirmation certificate from the bishop! ( then dashed to work by the skin of my teeth!) thank you for this great addition to those who cannot make the services in person.

  55. I very much enjoy joining you on the net usually for the Sunday 5.30pm and thanks to Father for always saying hello to the net people. Be sure that I always wave lol.

    The Holy Thursday mass was particularly lovely and I was only sorry i couldn't join you on Good Friday and for the Easter vigil but I had to attend at my own parish.

    I must say that the church seems very well kept and always looks so well decorated – i love the nice and unusual touches like the shamrock for St Patrick and the various types of palms for Palm Sunday on the altar.

    Would it be possible to post some pics on the site so that we can see the whole inside of the church?

  56. In bed sick today and unable to attend Mass in my own (Anglican) Church so joined you online. Thank you for this ministry. I feel uplifted by joining you in worship.

  57. Thank you for allowing me to take part in the Mass with you. I have just had a hip replacement and am reliant on others for lifts to Mass so really appreciate being able to take part in daily Mass on line. i like the way Fr always greets those watching online.

    Thanks and God Bless, Mary


  58. This was amazing! I watched the 5:30 mass and it made me feel like I was back at home. I am a college student in Alabama, U.S. who would have to drive a while and wake up early to go to mass here and the mass there is nothing like my mass at home so having this to be so convenient is great and I also appreciate how much it feels like my mass back home.The 5:30 mass you have there is at 11:30 here which is perfect opposed to many other online masses which are at 4 or 5 am here. I appreciate that ya'll do this!

  59. It's very grateful to find this web mass from the net. I have been joining the web mass at times I can't commute to the church in Hong Kong, especially on the first day of Chinese New Year! I wish the community all the best.

  60. I would agree with all the previous comments about feeling included and not missing out on the mass when either ill or unable to attend for any reason. It also also nice for the net watchers to be acknowledged by you Father at the begining of each mass. The sunday children are delightful and it is good to see this – they are the furure of our faith. God bless the congregation.

  61. Lovely to join you for 5.30pm Mass today. I am babysitting my new grandson in USA !!! God Bless Fr. Chris and all at St. Mary's and thankyou for a lovely celebration of God's Love.

  62. Was not able to attend Mass today, Sunday, due to snow and ice.  It was wonderful to be part of a live Mass, so I do feel that I have attended Mass today.  God Bless you all.

  63. Dear Friends

    Thanks so much for the Mass this morning, I joined once before when I was ill and again today, feeling not strong enough to go out today, after losing my Dad a few weeks ago. Please pray for the repose of his soul, Joe Reynolds age 93. The hymns you sing are very similar to those at our church St William of York Forest Hill. Do you see a way of the words being on the screen for those who want to join the singing? More power to the elbow of the webmaster. Thanks.




    Eileen Reynolds

  64. I live in Milan and was able to go back to the UK this year for Christmas for the first time ever.  It was a real comfort to be able to be "at" Christmas Eve Mass (as I am every year) by watching your online service.  Thanks so much for sharing your services with the world, it makes a real difference!

  65. Alan and Audrey Steer

    Thank you for having some a wonderful site. We sit down and watch Mass every day, it is a highlight of the day!

  66. Due to my disability I am now unable to attend Mass but thanks to your website, especially to-day, I can participate again. It is the first day, for a long time, that I have been able to share the Mass with the Church and its people. To-day has given me great joy and comfort.  God bless to you all. Patsy, France

  67. Прывітанне з Паўднёвай Остроботнии

    (Which means Greetings from South Ostrobothnia – Thanks for your comment!)

  68. Elizabeth Anyaegbuna

    Greetings, from Rowlett/ Dallas/ Texas, It a pleasure visiting, this site, it has been a blessing, may the Almighty God in his inifite mercy continue to guide and protect all of us, Amen!

  69. Greetings from Karachi, Pakistan.
    Have had some problems with the vision and sound but it is SO good to see and hear Fr. Chris and know you are all still there!Will try again tomorrow for 10.30am Mass as I don’t think I will have a driver to take me to mass here and it’s too far to walk. Love to all and God Bless. Diana

  70. James Chasteauneuf

    Lovely to find this internet Mass on the anniversary of the dedication of St Mary of the Angels – “Not in a building but us – as the body of Christ” as Fr Chris said. I’m in Wales, haven’t managed to visit Worthing for a while now but will be viewing again soon – especially Advent, Christmas & Easter – I think I recognised Mr Bonetti at this the 8.30am Mass! God bless

  71. Loved participating in your live streaming mass. I am housebound with RA and was looking for such a site. God bless all. Ann, Malaysia.

  72. Veronica Goedhals

    I was so thrilled to find your website,i had a very nasty fall so was not able to attend Passion Sunday Mass,what a joy to share in your morning Mass.
    Many Thanks.Veronica Durban South Africa

  73. Great undertaking, me and my kids can watch the Holy Eucharist here in Saudi Arabia, while their mother attended the 10:30 mass.We Thank you for the equal chance.

  74. Lovely to be able to join you in spirit and participate in your worship when unable to get out. This is a terrific idea -thank you so much for all your efforts!

  75. Great idea! I live in Wales but come from Sussex. Lovely to be able to “attend” the Mass from home – my nearest churches are 10, 12, 16 and 20 miles away!
    Picture quality was pretty good – as was sound quality, except when the bell was rung (during the Eucharist) when there was a sound similar to cloth being brushed over a microphone.
    What a superb way to use the Internet – and a new way to give glory to God.
    Thank you.

  76. For some time I have felt that I have been missing out by not being on the web and it was as a result of reading about your web site that I have at last gone on line. On most weekdays I get to mass but to day I was not well enough and I have just enjoyed being at your 10 a.m. mass. To be able to see and hear so clearly has been wondwerful. I am 84 and very hard of hearing. Thank you so much.

  77. Richard Callaghan

    The Site is excellent.
    In the Groups section would you consider putting the The two Peace Vigils. Avila House on Tuesdays and the BlessedSacrament Chapel on Fridays

  78. It was lovely to be able to share in the Mass today as I have been poorly and unable to attend today. I think its wonderfull that we have such a lovely chance to share in Spirit even if not in person.

    God Bless All

  79. I’m able to hear mass, see my brother every Sunday, he’s one of the altar server on 5pm mass. It’s good to see him real time., He’s alone there and we’re in the Philippines. Great Site!!
