  1. I live in Wales, am 93 and watch mass regularly. You bring me so much comfort. The First communion brought back such memories of mine. May 1940, in France, a strange family celebration, 2 days later we were fleeing home from the Germans. 6 June 1944 we were up all night, some 30 miles from the beaches. How I will end my life here, the ways of the Lord are mysterious indeed.
    God bless you and all the parish.

  2. Thank you father Terry for saying mass so reverently. My friend Priscilla and I joined in with mass online all through Lockdown and are always uplifted by you beautiful voice. I was on my computer and she was listening in with her phone as I put my phone by the speaker. I am hoping to visit Worthing soon with my husband Peter so we can attend mass in person in your church. Unfortunately the journey will be too long for Priscilla but I will take her back some photos of the church and yourself if we meet you. I am still following your mass when I can.

    Priscilla. Peter and I live in Luton Bedfordshire.

  3. I am extremely grateful to be able to watch the mass on line, as our church has been shut for over a year now.
    Many thanks Fr. Terry

  4. We have found the on-line mass very helpful during these unusual times but have found the streaming seems not to be working for the last couple of weeks. Would like to know if it is likely to be back on again soon. Best wishes, Dave.

  5. Dear Father Terry,

    Thank you for a beautiful Easter Sunday Mass. Very uplifting and so heartening to see so many young people coming up during Communion. All is not lost 🙂

    Enjoy your Easter Eggs and thank you again,

  6. St Mary of the Angels has become my Lock Down Church and I am so much at home. I go to St Joseph’s in Hay on Wye Wales. When lock down started I ‘travelled ‘around. Then someone I had known for years Sister Maureen returned to the convent in Worthing as she became frail. I have relatives in the area so on a couple of my yearly visits I met Maureen in the Home and was well looked after. When she died her funeral was streamed my introduction to St Mary of the Angels I heard every word clearly(important to a deaf person) and I felt at home. It has become my church. Good sermons lovely to see the children and different races. When I eventually get down your way again I will come in person I know where you are

  7. Dear Father Terry,
    Thank you for your live mass service on 7 February 2021 (15.30 West Indonesian Time). I was so powerfully blessed through today’s live mass. What I experienced at today’s live mass was a beatific loving presence of Jesus Christ and The Father.
    I am from Indonesia. This is the first time I attend live mass from St Mary of the Angels, a beautiful historical chruch. The radiance of your church and mass service is real!
    Thanks to Father God.

    Caritas Christi,

  8. Hello, yes, I find this site very inspiring but the comments, live-stream Mass and Prayers are no use to people who do not have a Smartphone, Laptop or access to either of these. This is very hard in times of closed Churches where people cannot watch Mass online. People who are lonely would find a Mass very uplifting. I don’t know if Masses being broadcast on TV or Radio but some do not have a TV. Also I find by reading your Parish Newsletter there are no contact numbers for your Parish Office. I hope you do not mind these comments. I used to live in England for 37 years and my last Parish was St Catherine’s in Littlehampton but I am living since March 2018 in Germany. I am in contact with my Friend David Howell who lives on his own in East Worthing but has no access to either TV but has a Radio and a ‘normal’ Mobile. I find especially when talking to him that when not able to come to Mass because of no Buses or difficulties in his Health that he Gent.

  9. Dear Father Terry,
    I’m still watching twice a week from West Wales. No church services here since March. I miss church so much but found you and thank the Lord for that. You keep me going and I wish I could attend in person.
    Please know how much your online service means to all of us who cannot otherwise get this blessing. Thank you.

  10. Greetings from Houston, Texas, USA. Our family really enjoyed Mass with you today (tonight your time). One unexpected blessing of online Mass is the opportunity to join our brothers and sisters around the world in live prayer even though we could never be there in person. May God bless you and your whole parish community!

  11. Some of us still haven’t ‘got it’ – I enjoyed watching the flower arrangement of poppies grow this morning at 8:30 until I realised that streamed Mass was back to 10:30 as we are now all back in lockdown!!
    Thank you as always for a moving and inspiring service! Thank you God, for giving us this support, in these difficult and scary times.

  13. Dear Fr Terry,
    Thank you so much for your suggestion today that you should sing again for the online Masses – we have missed that in recent weeks, and do so agree with you about the value of music at Mass. At least those of us at home can sing out the responses with gusto, and where appropiate the other parts of the liturgy too!
    Thank you again for providing such a welcoming experience for those of us who are not yet returning to Mass in person. It means so much.

  14. I just wanted to add my thanks for the on line mass.
    I miss my visits to my church. and Priests and Friends at St Lawrence at home here in west London
    I have enjoyed joining you in Worthing so much.
    I am an “unpaid, unrecognized, full time, carer to my 81 yr old Father”
    Sadly I am not one who can see any light in this dark time, and I am finding “faith and hope” a real challenge., but I at least find some peace when I am sharing your services.

    • Dear Steve, being a carer is an important job, which brings comfort, dignity, and companionship to your father. God will see the work that you do, God will see what is in your heart. And that he will be by your side and will walk with you in the darkest of times if only you pray and ask him to do just that.
      Remember Our dear brother Jesus, he was poor and died on the cross for us, he is our saviour and he went through so much pain and suffering for us all. He will never never not recognise you, what you and other carers do is help others and that is a wonderful thing to be able to do.
      Living a simple life is a wonderful thing to do, with no riches and no falseness.
      May God bless you, protect you and give you the strength you need. Always look to God no matter what always look to God.

    Thank you for your wonderful masses. Have been attending your beautiful Church online
    every Sunday since you started streaming.. as many others have said I hope in the not too distant future to meet you personally in Worthing. It may amuse you to know that my little dog attends too when I say it’s time for mass.

  16. Welcome back, Father Terry. I’m so pleased you are rested after your well deserved break! Thank you again for continuing to live stream mass for those of us around the country who are unable to attend live masses in person. I find particular comfort in the Spiritual Communion. I miss Father John and all my friends at Sawston Parish but I appreciate being able to share with your parish family. Thank you again! Anne Cowell

  19. I have been following your Sunday Mass, and congratulations on being able to resume services; we are not yet at this stage in South Wales where I live.
    I would just like to make one comment; please could the Celebrant look in the direction of the camera and include the on-line participants when offering the “kiss of peace” as I feel those watching would like to be included.
    I have known your church all my life as my family have lived at Worthing for many years and I remember visiting as a child before the modernisation was carried out, in the days of Fr MacInerney.

  22. I would like to thank you Father Terry for the way that you say Mass so clearly and with such meaning. My self and my friend Priscilla both love your singing. On a Sunday I phone my friend who has not got a computer and she listens in through her phone. We pray together with you and really find it uplifting. I have started tuning for the weekday masses as well.
    I will certainly miss your lovely singing if there is to be no singing in church when the congregation return.
    When we are able to Priscilla and I are going to make the journey to Worthing from our home town of Luton in Bedfordshire so that we can attend a mass at your church and thank you in person for keeping us happy and linked to God throughout the lockdown.

  23. Father Tim, thank you so much for broadcasting the Mass during “lockdown”. It has been a real joy for me to be able to take part from the sidelines so to speak.

  24. Thank you Father Terry for your beautiful Sunday Masses which I have attended since lockdown. I sit with my mass sheet, my missal and my hymn book, and join in as though I was present in Worthing, although I live in North Yorkshire. I am greatly appreciating the sound quality, the deep sincerity and conviction, the heartfelt messages that are so relevant to our current lifestyle issues, and especially the singing, which is such an important part of the mass for me. God bless you for all you are doing for so many people all over the world.

  25. Here in France we have had the Churches open and Mass said for the last two weeks. My parish church is large and is always full so am not sure that it is possible to distance people. I don`t think the precautions that Fr. Terry was talking about this morning have been taken. I have not been and will not be going for sometime until I am sure all is well. This Mass is a joy and I shall continue to be here at 11.00 French time every day. Thank you Fr. Terry

  26. Father,

    It is strange how we become planted in our faith. Like us choosing the same pew in the same church for our attendance each week. This morning I enjoyed celebrating communion with you at your beautiful church through my virtual visit from Harlow, Essex.

    By the grace of God and through the guidance of His Holy Spirit I do hope in the future we all take up an opportunity to get out from the familiar to explore our faith in the unknown. Or perhaps, ‘Expect guests’ and sit somewhere different to offer our peace to a stranger among us.

    Thank you.
    Martin.

  27. Thank you Fr Terry for your daily masses online which are so holy and uplifting at this difficult time. The prayer to St Michael is particularly appropriate, too, as a defence against the harmful influences of the Corona virus. We live in Kent but feel a close spiritual affinity with the numerous fellow participants at you masses not only from your own parish but also nationally and indeed from many countries all over the world. It is pleasing to know that the Mass is now available to so many who are able to access it online and gives great hope for the future. May God bless you and your crucial ministry.

    By doing so you probably cannot imagine how much comfort you bring to us all.
    We thank the Lord for having blessed us with you as a Priest and we will continue praying for you too.
    Everyday we have a special thoughts to all the frontlines. You too Father you are one of them. This pandemic is a time where Evil May realise that nothing is more powerful than God himself. By celebrating The daily mass you are re enforcing our faith in Church and the Lord. You are opening a worship place in each house. Thank you father. God bless you for your great work.

  30. Dear Father, I remember watching the online mass a few weeks before lockdown and seeing how lovely the parish is with the church being full of people and singing hymns and praying together. It must be difficult for you and other priests saying mass to what looks like an empty church, it must be heart breaking. I pray that God will continue to give you and others in the Catholic Church the strength in these terrible times. I appreciated you singing the hymns to the mass, and although you cannot hear your parish and those that join in from further afield to take part in the mass, and you cannot hear us all pray. The most important thing is that God will hear as all. God will hear each and every one of us who sing the hymns and say the prayers. We are all still part of his church and we all can still participate in that each and every day. I want to ask everyone who reads this to keep safe and well and that we all pray for those vital key workers who do so much for everyone. When this awful situation is over may be continue to forge a more loving and kind world in which greed and bitter ways are diminished. No matter how hard times can be God is always there and in him we find comfort and his everlasting love. With respect Sarah from Glasgow.

  31. Fr Terry, you are a hero! I’ve watched your Mass live from Sydney now 3 Sundays during Easter and marveled at your mastery of the Tech and the warmth and beauty of your liturgy. We have been fortunate here in Australia but I pray for all my friends and colleagues in England who are suffering. When we are at last able to travel again I will come to Mass in Worthing.

    St Michael, pray for us!

  32. Hello Father, I simply cannot begin to tell you just how much comfort it brings me in sharing your services during this very trying time. I attended your church when I came to visit my son and family last year. I live up in south Manchester and have only managed to get to visit Worthing once due to me having MS. I miss my son beyond all words . When I was searching for an Easter live streaming your church was the first one at the top of the list. So delighted to be able to have attended throughout Easter. Thank you for what you are doing. I truly cannot begin to tell you just how much it means to me. I relish the chance to come down to Worthing again and attend your church in person. Kathryn

  38. I tried various online masses on Good Friday and could not relate to them at all. I stumbled on this site and the angle from which the mass was filmed and the very clear diction of the priest made it possible to feel that I was really attending Mass. The priest also sang ‘As I survey the wondrous Cross’, which I really needed to hear. Thank you so much for this. I attended online on Easter Sunday as well. These are difficult times for everyone and it is a very solitary time, when many people are losing their jobs. It is a great comfort to be able to attend Mass this way when the churches are closed.

  40. My most sincere thanks to Fr. Terry and all who help with the online mass service. I am in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and my mother is in Rhyl, Wales. We were both able to watch all scheduled masses during the Easter period and continue to follow on a daily basis. This has given us a chance to be “together” in church (we watch mass on our respective laptops, but also use our mobiles to see each other at the same time). God bless you all.

    • I am so moved, each week, by Fr Terry’s Mass. I am an 88year old cradle Catholic. I cannot recall ever having felt such emotion. Fr Terry was some years ago a priest at St Joseph’s Redhill, Surrey, the church I attended. He was, alongside Fr Stephen with a party of parishioners from various parishes on a Pilgrimage to Poland in 2008. I would love Fr Terry to know that John my partner became a Catholic in 2012. Sadly John died in 2018. I have two photographs of that visit and would love to send them to Fr Terry , by e-mail, if he would be interested.

  69. 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

  75. 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.

  76. 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.

  77. 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.

    • 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.

  78. 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 clearly..one 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

    • 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.

    • 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.

  81. 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!

  82. 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!

  83. 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.

  84. 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 .

    Reply
  85. 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.

  86. 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.

    • 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 .

  87. 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.

  88. 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!

  90. 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.

  91. 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

  92. 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.

  96. 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.

  97. 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

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.

  104. 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?

  107. 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!

  109. 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.

    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.

  113. 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!

  123. 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.

  124. 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.
