Help with Order of Service booklet for Catholic mass?

Thu May 22, 2008 3:13 pm

Hi ladies, having some trouble putting together my OOS and need some help! We're getting married in a Catholic church, with the full mass/communion etc. Wondering if anyone has any templates for an OOS for this type of ceremony, I'm getting really stuck!

Thanks in advance!

hey, jaynage..

do you just want the templates for printing or do you want the actual wordings and order of the mass?

Both if possible! Mainly concerned about the wording at this stage, but I will take any help I can get!

I can't help you much, because we were married in an Anglican Church. But our Minister lent us copies of OOS from ceremonies he had performed previously. This was really handy because I thought I had to put in a lot more than I did, and also they can get a little pernickety about how they like certain prayers are laid out (like the Our Father). So I suggest giving you priest a call.

Here's a website that has a list of readings that you can include:

I also have attained a template for a Mass Booklet. I'll be happy to send it to you. Just PM your email address and I can forward it to you. :)

Hi Jaynage, I've got a copy of my OOS. Give me your email address and I'll send it to you. I had a full catholic mass and my OOS had every single word of the mass in it. I've seen OOSes with just the important bits in it but I wanted the full version coz a lot of our guests weren't catholic and we wanted them to be able to follow.

Yeah, putting together the OOS was pretty stressful for me too. Your priest should give you a book (don't remember what it's called) which has the wordings of the mass in it, and at certain parts of the mass you get to choose from a few different versions and you decide which version you like and basically cut and paste it to suit you. Sorry if I'm not making sense. My DH is playing with his WII and has the sound turned up... which makes it hard for me to concentrate on what I'm typing :)
