Preparing for the New Translation in the Parish

Fr Martin Jakubas in session with the parish
Camberley and Bagshot parish reports: Like every other parish in the English-speaking world, Camberley & Bagshot (C&B) in leafy north-west Surrey has got down to preparing itself for the introduction of the new translation of the Mass. Chair of the A&B Diocesan Liturgy Commission Fr Martin Jakubas came to the parish on Saturday 21 May to give 70 parishioners a serious look at the purpose and meaning of the liturgy including an absorbing critique of the new translation.

Earlier, parish priest Mgr Richard Madders had celebrated Mass in the new translation as a one-off trial. Parishioners from C&B, St Dunstan’s Woking and Our Lady Queen of Heaven, Frimley came to St Tarcisius Church hall for the study day and went away asking for ‘much more of this sort of thing please’. Similar such study days are being planned to cover a variety of topics.
