The new Roman Missal will be delivered to each of the New Zealand dioceses this week. They will then be distributed to parishes as soon as possible.
The New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference has not set a day for national implementation of the new Roman Missal as yet, but they will be soon be informing people of a date that the new texts are to be in use by.
Wellington Archbishop John Dew, in his newsletter, thanked priests and leaders for their patience over what he said was an unavoidable delay while the printing error was corrected.
The new Roman Missal does not include any more new responses for the people to learn. However the traditional Our Father must be used now. The one that has been used in recent years may still be used for any other time of prayer, but not in the Mass.
