International Commission on English in the Liturgy

The International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) is a commission set up by a number of episcopal conferences of English-speaking countries for the purpose of providing English translations of the liturgical books of the Roman Rite, the originals of which are in Latin.[1]

Decisions to adopt these translations are made by the episcopal conference of the country concerned,[2] and these decisions are reviewed by the Holy See before being put into effect.[3]
