Catholics who cannot attend Mass daily are encouraged to watch online

New Haven, CT (OCTOBER 15, 2008) – The Office of Communications/TV Ministry of the Diocese of Worcester, MA, has teamed up with Catholic.net for broadcasting the Daily Mass over the internet in an effort to broaden Catholics’ access to the daily liturgy.

The Daily Mass is broadcast each weekday morning from the Mary, Mother of the Redeemer Chapel in the Cathedral of St. Paul, Worcester, Massachusetts. The Mass began primarily as a way for homebound, elderly and shut-in viewers to be able to participate in the celebration of the Mass by watching from their homes.

In October 2006 the Mass was offered on the internet to viewers all over the world. Since its internet debut, there have been over 25,000 viewers from all over the world including England, Dubai, and New Zealand. Now the expectation is that over 10 thousand viewers are reached daily through www.catholic.net/mass.

“Now we are able to impact significantly the number of viewers that we can reach by offering the Daily Mass on Catholic.net as well as WorcesterDiocese.org” said Steve Kaufman, manager of productions and programming for TV Ministry for the Diocese of Worcester .

The Diocese of Worcester’s Mass is unique because the celebrant is different each day, the homily is very well prepared often directing the preaching to the viewers and making mention of them during the prayers of petition. In addition, the TV ministry of the Diocese does a state of the art postproduction.” Rosalia Tenorio, Director of Catholic.net said that “Offering the daily Mass on our portal is a wonderful addition to our users. We are very thankful to the Diocese of Worcester for extending their service to the Catholic.net Community.”

The Daily Mass and Catholic.net, both non-profit, are funded by contributions from viewers and visitors.

    I'm on vacation in the Maritimes and house-bound due to emergency surgery. I don't want to miss Mass and I've tried three times to download the QuickTime app. It downloads but the wizard that enables me to "Run" it doesn't come up. It's frustrating and I don't know where to go from here. My strength is ebbing quickly so if there's an easier way to do this, please email me.

    Thank you.

    I get so upset trying to find the MASS on-line. Can anyone make it a simple option?
    If I click on something that has come up from my search, that says DAILY MASS, why can't the mass come up?

    I have now tried 3 options and cannot get one to work and give me the mass.

    This is very upsetting. please use the KISS method and give me a mass! thank you
    .
    I was a programmer Analyst before I retired and designed screens as part of my job. If i cannot make these on line options work, can anyone?
