Missal 3 Workshop Resources:
On the First Sunday of Advent, 2011, Roman Catholics in the
United States began praying the Eucharistic Liturgy using the
third edition of the Roman Missal. This section on our webpage
is dedicated to assisting our communities in the work of

has already taken place, our task is just beginning. As we begin
to use this new Missal, we will be called to a deeper
appreciation of and engagement in the liturgy. Mystagogy is a
