Youth Sunday

The weekend Masses were a great joy. It was lovely to see our wonderful young people involved in the Liturgy in so many ways. The social/fund-raising events for charities involved with young people afterwards were also a great expression of our community life.
We all enjoyed the presentation by Bernadette and Charlotte about the Papal Mass at Cofton Park. If you would like to revisit what they said click here

New translation of the Missal

It seems likely that the new translation of the Missal will be in use in this country in about a year's time. It is widely agreed that one of the virtues of the new translation is its transparency to the Scriptural roots of so much of the liturgy. Last year the Americans produced a text with footnotes to draw attention to this characteristic. Martin Foster of the Liturgy Office has now reshaped this material to make it easier to use - the scriptural references are now beside the relevant pieces of text. You can study this here. It is quite a large file, and you may need to wait a few moments for the text to display clearly. We are not certain that this is the absolutely final version of the translation, but it will give us a good idea of what is to come.
