Wednesday, 06 December 2017 09:40

We are very happy to announce that in the last few days we have received permission for the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments to proceed with the publication of the following:

1. Excerpts from the Roman Missal (for use at the Presider's Chair).  We have also received permission to include alternatives for the Penitential Act, which had not been permitted previously in the publication of the Roman Missal

2. The Order of Blessing the Oil of Catechumens and of the SIck and of Consecrating the Chrism.  It is our intention to have this published in time for the Masses of Chrism across the country.

3. The Order of Dedication of a Church and an Altar.

More information will be forthcoming.  We anticipate the book for the Presider's Chair and the Rite of Dedication to be ready by early Spring 2018.
