The revised Canadian English-language edition of the Missal was officially launched Oct. 17, during the bishops’ plenary assembly. It will go into effect in Canada, as in other English-speaking countries, on the First Sunday of Advent.

At the plenary assembly, the second printed copy of the Missal was presented to Archbishop Pedro López Quintana, apostolic nuncio to Canada. 

Archbishop Richard Smith of Edmonton, president of the conference, also gave the Holy Father a copy of a book marking the opening of a new building for St. Joseph Seminary in Edmonton. It is the first volume in a series titled «Lieux sacrés / A Geography of Faith.»

The bishops’ delegation will continue its visits in Rome with the major offices of the Holy See until Nov. 18.
