New Haven, CT. October 15, 2008. The Office of Communications/TV Ministry of the Diocese of Worcester, MA, has teamed up with Catholic.net to broadcast 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 in Worcester, Massachusetts. The Mass broadcast began primarily as a way for homebound, elderly and shut-in viewers to be able to participate by watching from their homes.

In October of 2006, the Mass was offered on the Internet to viewers all over the world. Since its debut, there have been over 25,000 viewers worldwide, including countries such as England, Dubai, and New Zealand. Now the expectation is that over 10 thousand viewers will be reached daily through Catholic.net

“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 Worcester diocese’s Mass is unique because the celebrant is different each day. The homily is very well prepared, with the preacher addressing the viewers directly 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, “Offering the daily Mass on our web site 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 broadcast and Catholic.net, both non-profit, are funded by
