Mgr Bruce Harbert: 2023 St Bede Lecture



to be given on Saturday 8 July 2023, at 2.30 pm at Ealing Abbey by

Rt Rev’d Mgr Bruce Harbert

executive director of the International Committee on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) 2002-2009

Based on the text of Sacrosanctum Concilium36. 1:

The use of the Latin language

is to be preserved in the Latin rites :

Linguae latinae usus …

in Ritibus latinis servetur.”


Mgr Harbert has begun to post on his blog Missal Notes once again, available here. He offers insightful studies of prayers of the Roman Missal drawn from his work with ICEL and translating the Missale into English.

Here is the first of a four part series of lectures Mgr Harbert gave for the McGrath Institute for Church Life at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. Ealing Abbey, London, W5 2DZ. Contact Clare Cogswell at this email address. A map is available here.
