St. Joseph Church speaker to explain updates in the Roman Missal


The Catholic Mass verbiage is being updated to reflect a more accurate Scriptural translation. These changes will begin on the first Sunday of Advent, which occurs Nov. 27. 

The St. Joseph congregation, as well as the greater Conway community, is encouraged to attend this instruction, 6:15-7:15 p.m. Sunday at the church. There will be a 30-minute question-and-answer session immediately following Monsignor Richard Oswald’s presentation. Attendance is free and open to the public.

On the night before Jesus died, he prayed fervently for unity among his disciples. The unity of Christians is a primary concern of the Catholic Church, and Church leaders strive for the language of the Mass to echo the prayers of the early disciples. The Vatican’s instruction on the translation of the liturgy, states: "Certain expressions that belong to the heritage of the whole or of a great part of the ancient Church...are to be respected by a translation that is as literal as possible."

On Sunday evening, Oswald will instruct those in attendance about the Mass’s language changes. This instruction will be an opportunity for Catholics, and the public, to hear, learn and welcome the new language of the Roman Missal.
