We had wonderful news about Pope Francis statement on the English Liturgy and the translation of the Mass last week.

Please consider writing to the Bishops and the Bishop's Conference about it. Use this form on this web site. No need to write a long letter- even just a few sentences will help!
 
Pope Francis has decentralised authority over the English translation of the liturgy from the Vatican to the Bishop's Conference of England and Wales.   In 1998 every Bishop's Conference of the English speaking world collegially approved an English translation of the Mass, after 17 years of intense international study by ICEL. That body of ICEL was disbanded.  After only four years, a newly formed ICEL introduced the 2010 translation, which has not been received well by many. We want to ask the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, meeting in Leeds in mid-November, to discuss introducing the 1998 Liturgy which they themselves had chosen, as soon as possible.

ACTA has been campaigning for years for the adoption of the 1998 Missal approved unanimously by the Bishops Conference of England & Wales - this is our chance - please help if you can NOW! 

Please send an email to Fr Paul Gunter This email address is being protected from spambots.

It has to be proposed by this Department first for the Bishops' Conference to discuss it together.
