Notre Dame University has created a Web Catechesis for 3rd Roman Missal program. It features a series of streaming videos recorded by liturgical scholars to assist schools, parishes, and university communities in their preparation for the Advent 2011 implementation of the revised missal. Although geared toward administrators and community leaders, the videos are worthwhile for all.
