missalcancvrconceptThe National Liturgy Office and the Publications Service of the CCCB are pleased to announce that a new Website is now online for the Roman Missal. This Website,, is designed to help parishes, missions and institutions across Canada in understanding the contents of this new book, which will be available this fall. The Website includes resources for preparing parish bulletins and workshops. It also contains links to Roman Missal related materials from the National Liturgy Office and the Publications Service of the CCCB, which are producing the book. There are also links to Websites of Catholic Dioceses in Canada concerning the Roman Missal, as well as links to Roman Missal Websites from English-speaking conferences of Bishops around the world and the Vatican.

The prefaces and other prayers for the Sundays of Advent from the CCCB edition will soon be posted, to facilitate the efforts of Priests in preparing to proclaim these new translations. For musicians, there are links to recordings of the three settings for the Ordinary of the Mass that were composed specifically for Canada.

Every diocese and parish with a Website is more then welcome to put a link to on their own sites. The cover image of the Missal makes a great image for such a link. Our webmaster would also be pleased to post any additional diocesan links for the Roman Missal that we may have overlooked.

Because this is the only version of the new translation of the Roman Missal approved for use in parishes and institutions across Canada by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, the CCCB offers as the new resource to aid in the implementation of the Roman Missal on the first Sunday of the Advent, November 27, 2011.
