Implementation Directives - GIRM 2011

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Re: Implementation Directives for the Diocese of Calgary According to the General Instruction to the Roman Missal, 2011

The purpose of the attached document is to call attention to the paragraphs in the General Instruction on the Roman Missal (GIRM) that require a change of practice for some if not all of our parishes and to present the decisions that I have made as Bishop of the diocese of Calgary on the same.

This document does not mention the items that are not changing in our diocese and presumes that we are following the current GIRM. The directive is not a substitute for the GIRM or other study in liturgy. Catechesis on the liturgy should occur now in terms of the changes and should also be ongoing in terms of the meaning of liturgical prayer in general. The diocese is committed to preparing materials to help in ongoing catechesis on liturgical matters.

We have updated the Diocesan Mass Response Card to include rubrics for posture where these have changed. This updated card is available online for download and reproduction.

The Third Edition of the Roman Missal and the revisions of the GIRM indicated in this document should be implemented beginning on the First Sunday of Advent 2011 at all masses.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

F.B. Henry
Bishop of Calgary
