"Most parishes have weekday Masses--and a dedicated group attending them," says OCP Publisher John Limb. "We're proud to provide a missal that supports those communities."

Started in 1934 as My Sunday Missal--one of the first "pamphlet-missals" to be printed in English--Today's Missal is now the most widely used missal program in the United States.
