English-speaking Catholics begin using new Roman Missal on Sunday

His Holiness Pope John Paul II announced a revised version of the Missale Romanum during the Jubilee Year 2000.

Among other things, the revised edition of the Missale Romanum contains prayers for the observances of recently canonized saints, additional prefaces for the Eucharistic Prayers, additional Votive Masses and Masses and Prayers for Various Needs and Occasions, and some updated and revised rubrics (instructions) for the celebration of the Mass.

The English translation of the Roman Missal will also include updated translations of existing prayers, including some of the well-known responses and acclamations of the people.

The entire English-speaking world including the Caribbean, the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Africa will begin using the new Roman Missal from this Sunday 27th November, which conforms to the other languages.
