On September 14, 2017, Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston and President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) announced a publication date for the long-awaited Misal Romano, tercera edición -- the Spanish translation of the third edition of the Roman Missal for use in the United States. The revised text may be used in the liturgy as soon as Pentecost 2018 and its use becomes mandatory of the First Sunday of Advent 2018.

This is an historic moment for the dioceses of the United States! It marks the first time that this country has its own Spanish-language edition of The Roman Missal. Therefore, the members of the FDLC are pleased to collaborate with the secretariat staff of the Bishops’ Committee on Divine Worship in order to offer information on this new liturgical text. In addition, the arrival of this U. S. edition of the Misal Romano creates a golden opportunity to provide liturgical formation to all the faithful! These nationwide workshops will not only examine the revised text, but will equip clergy, lay leaders, and pastoral musicians with resources to aid parish instruction.
