Singaporeans prepare for new Missal translation

August 2, 2011

Catholics in Singapore will be among the first in the world to embrace critical changes to the Mass, expecting to use the new English translation of the Roman Missal from as early as September, reports The Straits Times.

English-speaking Catholic churches worldwide are expected to use the new text from Nov 27 - on the first Sunday of Advent.

The first in a series of information sessions for priests and Singapore's 185,000 Catholics began this week, and children will be taught the changes in Catechism classes from next week.
