Ministers in Masses Modifications

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:
