Replacement Missal pages with mention of St Joseph (for Eucharistic Prayers II to IV)

There is permission to download and print your own copies of the text and some music for the new translation until the First Sunday of Advent (17th November 2011). On that date, the full text will come into use (ie. not just the Ordinary of the Mass but the Missal Propers also). At that stage this temporary copyright permission ceases and you will need to seek ICEL copyright permission to print any texts from the new Missal.

The Directory for Masses with Children (1973) continues to be the Church's official instruction and guidance on celebrating Masses with children. It's provisions are not optional - if you celebrate Mass with children you are obliged to do so according to its principles and provisions (which are pastoral, enlightened and flexible).
