Parishes ‘adapt well’ to new Mass translation


PARISHES in England and Wales are adapting well to the new English Mass translation after it was introduced last week, a leading liturgy official has said.

Martin Foster, acting secretary for the Department of Christian Life and Worship of the Bishops’ Conference, said the change over had gone well.

He said: “Different parishes have done a different amount of preparation. Some had heard about it but some parishes have been introducing it for a long while and so people were ready for it. But otherwise it went well.” The bishops announced in January that the new translation of the Order of Mass would be introduced three months before Advent.

Fr Ray Blake of St Mary Magdalene’s church in Brighton said that introducing the text was “not as messy as I feared”. He said: “One person enthused about the beauty of the Gloria and how it seemed easier.” Fr Tim Finigan of Our Lady of the Rosary, Blackfen, Kent, wrote on his blog: “This morning, for the first time, I was able to celebrate Mass in English at which we used a decent translation... I was rather moved to be able to use it fully for the first time.”
