New Roman Missal – What You Need to Know

As you probably already know, we will be preparing to implement the new Roman Missal one year from now, in Advent, 2011. This will be an issue of critical importance to catechists who will be on the front lines of teaching others about how to adapt to the changes in the texts of the prayers we say at Mass. The time between now and then is to be used for catechesis on the liturgy and on the new Roman Missal.

With that in mind, I’m proud to announce that I am co-authoring (with D. Todd Williamson, Director of the Office for Divine Worship, Archdiocese of Chicago) a series of ten articles for Loyola Press on the new Roman Missal. These articles will provide you with what you need to know to better understand the changes when we implement them next year. I’ll point you to these articles weekly over the next 2 months as they are posted. You can read the first article here:

  1. Thanks for this, I’m sure there’ll be a demand for it. Just this morning I attended a top-notch New Missal seminar given by Fr. Dennis McManus; more than a couple of us catechists were interested in getting just the sort of thing you’re doing here, so I’m sending them this link.
