Latin in Catholic services--making a comeback?

My home Catholic church has been doing the "Lamb of God" prayer in Latin often in the last few months. Other Catholic churches I've been to recently have done either the "Holy Holy" or "Gloria" prayers in Latin--while the rest of the service is in English. Is there some push in the Catholic church, whether up high or at the parish level, to put more Latin in the modern mass? Are there any limits to how much of the service must be in the vernacular?
