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.

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.”
