Mass responses in Chinese?


#1

I have a friend from China who has expressed interest in attending Mass. However she would prefer to attend a Chinese Mass as she has a lot of difficulty with English-- does anyone know where I could find all the Mass responses in Chinese so she could follow along?
Thanks!

Are you looking for Mandarin, or Cantonese?

Mandarin
Are the Mass responses different for Mandarin/Cantonese speakers? I guess I assumed the text would be the same, although I know Cantonese uses a lot of colloquialisms that don’t always match the written Chinese text- just wondering- I have a huge interest in languages :stuck_out_tongue:

I have no idea if there is a difference. My sister's inlaws are from Hong Kong, so if it was Cantonese you wanted, they may have been able to help, in spite of the fact that they're not Catholic.

Written language is the same, spoken dialects are completely different.
