The New Missal
Changes?  What changes? The Mass is not changing but we will soon be using a new edition of the Roman Missal, the prayer book at Mass, in a new English translation. The readings at Mass are not changed. 
However, with the introduction of the new edition of the Roman Missal throughout the English -speaking world, we will all notice a change in how the Mass sounds. The translation of a number of our prayer texts from the original Latin have changed- sometimes by a particular word or in the word order. 
Prayers that we become used to reciting by memory now have to be relearned. Prayers that we are used to hearing the priest say will sound different to us. 
The style of the language we will hear and pray may seem more formal to us and perhaps, in parts, more complex. But over time, with the praying of these texts, the sound of the Mass will again become familiar to us.  
(Over the coming months we will in the parish bulletin, give more information on the changes and what to expect).
