New Translation of the Roman Missal

What's New? 


What's New in the Roman Missal, Third Edition

Introducing the New Missal


The words we say and hear at mass will soon be changing. There is a new edition and a new translation of the Roman Missal: the book containing the prayers we use for the celebration of the Eucharist. The new prayers will be phased into use between mid-September and the 27th November: the 1st Sunday of Advent 2011.


With these new translations of the prayers for mass, we have an opportunity to come to a renewed understanding of the prayers and to re-examine the celebration of the Liturgy.

Introducing the New Missal - Part 2


From the first Sunday of Advent, the new translation of the prayers which the priest says will come into use. During September, congregations will begin to pray new translations of the people's prayers.

If you would like to view changes in their entirety, you can download an Order of Mass here. Keep in mind, as these changes are not all introduced yet, this Order of Mass is currently for study purposes:
