Praying the Mass is a two stage process to assist the Archdiocese of Westminster to receive and use the new edition of the Roman Missal.
The first stage of Praying the Mass focused on our understanding of the Mass and how we pray it. It began in February 2011 and continued until July 2011.
The second stage begins in July and includes the introduction of the new translation of the Ordinary of the Mass (from September 2011) and the use of the full edition of the Missal (from the 1st Sunday of Advent 2011.) This second stage continues through the first months of 2012, particularly to assist parish communities as they prepare for the celebrations of Lent and Easter using for the first time the new translation and new chant settings.
A variety of resources have been prepared to assist parishes during this second stage.
Full details of the resources produced by the Catholic Truth Society and other publishers are available by clicking here.
Details of additional resources - including those produced specifically for Westminster Diocese and those produced by the Liturgy Office of the Bishops Conference of England and Wales - can be found by clicking here.
Recordings of the new English chant printed in the new edition of the Missal can be accessed here, together with details of how to order the Music Makers CD which provides recordings of all the Missal's English chant.
A number of training days have been held in the diocese to help parishes prepare to sing the new translation of the Mass. For information on forthcoming days, click here.
