Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but from a Catholic standpoint, all masses are valid if they are,
- said by a proper minister (priest or bishop with the proper faculties),
- who uses proper matter (bread and wine*), and
- utilizes the proper form (words of institution, epiclesis, etc.**),
- with the proper intention (to do what the Church does, facere quod facit Ecclesia).
* And perhaps water. This is a bit different in different rites. AFAIK, all Western rites use unleavened bread, and Eastern rites use leavened bread.
** This depends on the rite.
But a licit mass is only possible in churches who are in communion with the pope. (Licit means, basically, legal.) This excludes EO masses.
