We're in the process of implementing the use of the New English Translation of the Roman Missal based on Circular 2012-30 issued by the Diocese of Paranaque in consonance with a directive from the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines. The schedule of the gradual transition is as follows:

June -- "AND WITH YOUR SPIRIT" replaces "And also with you."

  • This applies to all the instances where "And also with you" are given as a reply i.e. during the Introductory Rites, Gospel, Eucharistic Prayer, Greeting of Peace and Concluding Rites. All other sacramental celebrations would also use the same reply.

July -- The CONFITEOR / I confess

  • Form A of the Penitential Act would be used so that the people can commit to heart the new translation.

I confess to almighty God
and to you, my brothers and sisters,
that I have greatly sinned,
in my thoughts and in my words,
in what I have done and in what I have failed to do,
through my fault, through my fault,
through my most grievous fault   [strike your breast once];
therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,
all the Angels and Saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters,
to pray for me to the Lord our God.

August -- The GLORIA

  • The Gloria is to be recited only to allow people to remember the text. All musical settings of the Gloria that do not conform with the official text may no longer be sung.

Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to people of good will.
We praise you,
we bless you,
we adore you,
we glorify you,
we give you thanks for your great glory,
Lord God, heavenly King,
O God, almighty Father.
Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son,
Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
you take away the sins of the world,
have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world,
receive our prayer.
you are seated at the right hand of the Father,
have mercy on us.
For you alone are the Holy One,
you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High,
Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit,
in the glory of God the Father.

September -- The CREED


I believe in one God, the Father almighty,maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages.

God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;

through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,

(At the words that follow, up to and including “and became man,” all BOW.)

and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried,

and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son,

who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins

and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen!


I believe in God,
the Father almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
(at the words that follow up to and including the 'Virgin Mary' all bow)
*** who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary, ***
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended into hell;
on the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting. Amen.

Hosanna in the highest.

November -- The Invitation to Communion / "Lord, I am not worthy..."


Priest: Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who takes away the sins of the world. BLESSED ARE THOSE CALLED TO THE SUPPER OF THE LAMB.

People: Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.


December -- Full Implementation on the First Sunday of Advent - 02 December 2012



Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name.

Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
