As you may know from preparation and announcements in your parishes, we will begin to use the new translation of the Mass on the First Sunday of August. The next several months provide us with the opportunity to learn more about the translation and how it will enrich our prayer.
Workshops continue to be offered throughout our diocese that explain why the changes are taking place and what they will entail (You can see a full schedule here).
Since all of us are accustomed to the responses that we have been using for years, the new translation is bound to be a bit of a transition. Therefore, all of the parishes will have pew cards so that it is easy to follow along with the new changes.
While you’ll be seeing them in your parishes soon, below is the pew card that we are using in the Diocese of Arlington.
