Ministers in Masses
I have revised Ministers in Masses to try and reflect
the changes of the 2002 Roman Missal, compared to the 2000 Institutio
Generalis. Ministers in Masses describes the celebration
of the Eucharist from start to finish, focusing on which ministers
do what, for various types of Catholic Mass. It was written in
2000 and posted on the Internet in January 2001.
The following links go to changes made today, 15 April 2002:
