    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

    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!

    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.
    Hilary.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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!

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.

    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.

    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.

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.
