Mass from Sydney, Australia

St Mary's Church, North Sydney (Our Lady of the Way)

Mass on Demand comes to you every day from the Jesuit church of St Mary's via the CathNews YouTube channel.

People who are frail, aged, ill, or isolated, can access Mass of the day through modern technology via the Internet.

 I've watched this a number of times (before 6 a.m. our time) and the priests have been quite elderly with a variety of accents. The lectors and servers also seem to be senior citizens. If there is a cantor, usually she has a lovely voice.  However, it is a faithful way to hear linked Bible passages of the day from the Old Testament, the Psalms, the Gospel and the Epistles. Catholic services have a lot more scripture than Protestant.  Maybe the shortest homilies I've ever heard--about 2 sentences.
