The National Centre for Liturgy has put together Celebrating the Mass Throughout the Year at a time when we prepare to use a new edition of the Roman Missal in a new translation. Like its companion volume, Celebrating the Mystery of Faith, a guide to the Mass, based on the new edition of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, it is a study book for priests, on their own or in groups; for liturgy teams; for ministers of the Word; for parishes; and for all who want to better understand how we celebrate
the Mass throughout the Year.
