Live streaming of Roman Catholic masses can be viewed online at sites such as The CatholicTV Network and The Sunday Mass. CatholicTV provides a schedule of daily masses broadcast from churches throughout the world. The Sunday Mass was started in 1970 by The Passionists of the St. Paul of the Cross Province and can be viewed online and on the ABC Family Channel.
Online Roman Catholic masses allow parishioners who are unable to attend mass to still be a part of the service. Viewers can include those who are homebound due to illness and military members serving overseas. The masses are provided for free, but viewers can support the service through donations.
