12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

New Roman Missal

To celebrate the Jubilee Year 2000, Pope John Paul II announced that the Roman Missal, the norm for Roman Catholic liturgy since Vatican Council II, was to be revised. The English translation, approved in 2010, was introduced on the first Sunday of Advent 2011.

Though change is never easy, one thing to remember is that while we will be using new words, we will still celebrate the same Eucharist. The Basilica staff is committed to continue to celebrate the Eucharist well. After all, the Eucharist gives us much needed spiritual nourishment on our earthly journey.

If you have questions, please contact Johan van Parys, Director of Liturgy, 612.317.3434.
