Prayers at Mass - a new translation
A number of the parts of the Mass will be changing. These include some of the congregation's responses (eg in the Creed and the ‘Holy Holy').
When the Mass was translated from Latin to English in the late 1960s, the present prayers were written. A new translation will now be introduced, more closely linked with the original texts, where the 1960s translation was less accurate.
The new prayers will be used fulltime from the end of November. In the meantime, we will use the newsletter and other means to gradually introduce the prayers to people.
