The new Roman Missal was delivered to dioceses in mid-February. Some parishes have already received their copies.
According to the Liturgy Centre in Auckland diocese, the new Roman Missal costs parishes $237. Many parishes, though, are likely to have more than one set.
New Zealand’s bishops are expected to discuss an official launch date for the missal in their meeting at Waikanae in late February.
There will be no new responses for the people to learn, as those were introduced in Advent 2010. The new responses that will be noticed when the new missal comes into effect will be those for the celebrant.
