The ritual editions of the new Roman Missal (the ones for priests) will be sent out to parishes around the UK on October 24th.
As you may have seen over the past few months on the blog, the Missals have been printed and hand-finished in Italy. They are now being shipped – literally, across the seas – to the UK and to Australia, to be delivered to Mass centres, prisons, monasteries, convents and many other places besides.
They will be packaged and prepared beforehand, so that on October 24th, which is a Monday, we can promptly send out the bulk of the priests’ Missals and you can finally see and handle them for yourselves. We look forward to receiving your feedback, at the end of October, here on CTS Catholic Compass.
The delivery date is four weeks before Advent starts, so there will be plenty of time to ensure every priest has his copies.
It is great that 90%-95% of priests have already ordered their copies. If you have not yet placed your order, please do so without delay to ensure we can get the Missals out to you in time.
