Beginning in Advent 2011, we will be using the New Roman Missal, the 3rd translation from Latin to English for the order of Mass. Some of the prayers we all have said and responded to will change.
A very good resource for exploring the changes and the question of "Why change?" can be found at our San Jose Diocesan website here. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have also provided a web site on the New Roman Missal.Our parish Liturgy Board is preparing a number of educational events beginning in September 2011 to catechize the parish community on these liturgical changes. Questions can also be directed to our parish Liturgy Coordinator Nora Lundin.
