WEEKDAY LECTIONARY - Important Information

Wednesday, 01 February 2017 00:00

We have received some inquiries regarding the Lectionary: Weekdays as it is out of print.  It has been revised and the manuscript was sent to the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments in January 2017.  Once recognitio has been received it will be published in a Year I and Year II format.   It will take at least 6 months to produce the first volume.  In the meantime, those who require Scripture readings from either of the current volumes can fine them "on-line" on the National Liturgy Office website under Weekday Lectionary.
