New Altar Missals (nearly) packed and ready to go!

Yesterday, CTS marketing manager Richard Brown – pictured – took a trip out to Farnborough in Hampshire, to see the new Roman Missals being prepared for distribution.

In an enormous warehouse, a large part of it filled with rows upon rows of CTS Missals, he saw the progress on the packing and labelling of the many thousands of Missals currently on order. They will be dispatched from 24th October, reaching their destinations within a few days after that (typically 25th – 27th October).

The photos below give you a first glimpse of the packaged Missals.

(Please note: these are the Missals for priests. The people’s Sunday Missals will be available from 24 November 2011, and the people’s Daily Missals from mid-January 2012.)

  1. Now that the ritual editions of the missal are up and away now its time to ficus on the peoples missals. The web entries really need updating. At this late stage do you really not know how many pages? I cannot believe it! Lets see the contents pages and a sample from the order of mass. Please!!

    • As you may be able to tell, we are having some techy trouble. As soon as we are back up we will supply the information.

    • Dear Fr Michael – I’ve just asked Production to supply the page extent for the Sunday Missal plus the table of contents and I’ll upload in due course. It’s only just been sent to press about 10 days ago. We’re still typesetting the Daily Missal. All the best.

      • That’s good news. Redemptorists have a few pages available to view. Collins have revealed little. Naturally us punters are eager to compare!! I know, get a life!!. Blessings.

        • Good to be able to see the sample pages of the Sunday Missal but, a question. The blurb says all Eucharistic Prayers included but the Contents page mentions only the basic 4. What about Reconciliation (2) and Special Occasions (4) ? Many thanks. M

          • Dear Fr Michael,

            The two extra ones you mention are not contained in the Sunday Missal, but they will be in the Daily Missal arriving in January.

          • That is a real pity. The two eucharistic prayers for reconciliation are recommended as suitable for use in Lent with a Lenten Preface. To have excluded these in particular from the Sunday Missal seems a wrong decision. Priests should not be limited in their legitimate choice of euchatistic prayer by editorial decisions made by publishers. Please reconsider.

  2. Do you happen to know when the Study Missals will despatch? (I have mine on order from The Book Depostiory.0

    • Study Missals will be despatched at the same time as the Altar and Chapel Missals, on 24 October. Any orders such as yours which pass via retailers will be with you a few days after they receive their stock, depending on how fast they turn around orders. Hope this helps.
