  1. I thought last week’s webinar was great!!! Thanks Joe for making those changes understandable. I hope the priests’ do as well. It seems many times when we have changes that the lay people really don’t receive good catechesis. I’m sending this to our pastor and associate.

    I’ve been a DRE for over 40 years and I’ll use all this information to train teachers and parents.

  2. Joe,
    I was looking and searching for a pro-active look at the Liturgy for
    our students. So glad to hear this is available. Should this be geared to
    catechists largely, hope you are doing one for each range of students to be used in the fall with Catholic schools–who often have students from many parishes and will profit from understanding what the new canon will be bringing at Advent.
    Thanking you,


  3. How can I get a copy of the charts used in the Roman Missal changes that are being made in the Mass? The charts used in the webinar were great and would be so helpful in my job.
    Thanks and blessings

  4. Just finished watching your webinar on the Roman Missal changes. It was wonderful. A clear and concise explanation of what the changes will be and why they are being made. I found it interesting that, as I travelled this past month from New York to Florida, there was a whole range of awareness of the upcoming changes. In Virginia the parish where we attended mass one week end had already scheduled a parish wide event in March to explain the upcoming changes. Yet in Florida the parish where my sister in law attends mass had not even mentioned the changes and she was not aware that they were being institued in November. I think it is important that the faithful be made aware of the changes and that they receive catechesis so that they can understand why they are being made. I hope my parish will make good use of the information you have provided in your webinar to instruct our parishioners about the changes. Thank you again for your generosity in sharing your knowledge and resources so freely with us.

    • Thanks Ana…I especially appreciate your take on how the implementation is happening accross the country…very interesting!
