Just last week, changes were introduced to the Catholic Mass texts, especially the congregational responses. The changes are designed to be more faithful to the original Latin texts on which the Missal is based. Some changes in wording are small, with different emphases in places. This resource is for teachers to help pupils learn the new responses and become aware of them.

My thanks to the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin ( for permission to re-produce this resource on Seomra Ranga.

Veritas also has resources for teaching the new mass responses to pupils. Called “Come, Gather and Celebrate”, there is a teacher’s book, as well as pupil workbooks for first/second class, third/fourth class and fifth/sixth class.
