E-mail Print PDF

The French Sector Commission for Liturgy and the Sacraments of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and the Office national de liturgie are informing Canadian French-speaking dioceses, parishes, bookstores and religious communities that the revised European edition of the French-language Lectionary now on sale is not approved for use in Canada. Although approved for use in Europe (France, Belgium, Switzerland), the Holy See and the Canadian Bishops have not approved it for Canada. Instead, the Bishops of the CCCB French Sector have agreed the revised Lectionary for Canada should incorporate inclusive language. The new Canadian edition of the French-language Lectionary is expected to be available in about a year, once it has been canonically approved by the Bishops of Canada and received the recognitio of the Holy See.
