New for 2022!

  • New titles from composers like Sarah Hart, Dan Schutte and Roc O'Connor
  • New chants and traditional hymnody
  • Updated supplements for the keyboard, guitar and solo instrument to support all new music

All three versions of this beloved missal include the complete Order of Mass with official chants as well as entrance and Communion antiphons and prayers and sequences for important ritual moments from the Roman Missal, Third Edition.

  • Breaking Bread offers synopses of the Lectionary readings and only the responses for the responsorial psalms and Gospel acclamations, for parishes that prefer to listen to the readings.
