Visitors to PrayingTheMass.com might be wondering where people and parishes are using the Praying the Mass series for catechesis. Not only are individuals buying the book, but there are parishes and prayer groups that are ordering copies for group study and discussion. And so, I've decided to give some details about where around the world people are using The Prayers of the People.

  • Charlotte, NC: 12 copies were sold after I gave a "Liturgy & Lager" presentation on the new translation.
