More Catholics are turning to livestreaming to experience Holy Mass - particularly at a time when the coronavirus is preventing some people from getting outside.

In our Archdiocese you can watch daily Mass broadcast from St Francis Xavier's in Falkirk here. The church's feed runs 24/7.

Parish priest Fr Jamie Boyle said: "We had the livestream for four years. We thought it was a good way to reach out to people who can't get to Mass.

"Over the years it has proved very successful. We regularly get emails from people across the world who are tuning in regularly - America, Australia, Canada and India - usually people who have some connection with the area.

"The livestream was a great outreach a couple of years ago when we had bad snow. It's also good for weddings and funerals; if relatives can't travel they can still be part of the service."

St Francis Xavier’s Sunday Mass times:

  • 10:00am
  • 12:00pm
  • 1:15pm
  • 7:00pm

Tune in for daily Mass at 10:00am (and at 7:30am on Mondays and Tuesday).

St Mary of the Assumption in nearby Bo'ness broadcasts its 10:00am Sunday Mass here.

Further from home

There are options to watch services at other churches. Aid to the Church in Need has created a handy resource where you can choose to watch Mass at a number of churches across the UK. Find it here.
