Local Missal preparation is under way

Preparations for the start of the use of the new translation of the third edition of the Roman Missal by clergy and lay faithful in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis have already begun.

Details about resources for planning and opportunities for formation within the archdiocese will be forthcoming.

These opportunities will include training for priests, music ministers and other liturgical leaders, such as liturgy committees and liturgical commissions, as well as formation for all Catholics to ensure the successful implementation of the new translation.

These preparations are being coordinated by Father Patrick Beidelman, archdiocesan director of liturgy, and the Office of Worship staff.

For more information about the new translation, visit the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Web site on the Roman Missal: To contact Father Beidelman, send him an e-mail at or call him at 800-382-9836, ext. 1480, or 317-236-1480. †
