New Roman Missal
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has received recognitio for all sections of the English translation of the revised Roman Missal for use in Canada. The Permanent Council has agreed that the first Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011, will be the date for the implementation of the English translation of the Missal.
Both the English Sector National Liturgy Office and the CCCB Publications Department are busy preparing the new publication and their work is proceeding on schedule.
As well, the National Liturgy Office has begun the launch of the catechetical material it has already prepared, and this will continue throughout the fall and into 2012 to assist in the process of ongoing liturgical catechesis. The resource Celebrate In Song, which contains the parts of the Mass spoken by the people, as well as three newly composed Mass settings and the ICEL chants, is now finished and available from the CCCB Publications Service. This resource contains the texts of Eucharistic Prayers I to IV and 40 hymns not currently found in the Catholic Book of Worship III.
