Bishop Peter Jugis Issues Liturgical Norms for Diocese of Charlotte

Some examples:
All parish churches and chapels are to have kneelers so that the faithful might kneel for both the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy and private devotion.

The words of prayers, responses and readings are to be utilized as they appear in the approved Mass texts. For example, The Nicene Creed, the response at the Orate fratres, and the preface dialogue, and other Mass texts are not to be altered. No foreign elements are to be introduced into the liturgy other than those that are called for by the liturgical norms, e.g. liturgical dance.
What? No "Danced Prayer" (Liturgical dance)?

See his Decree of Promulgation here.
