The liturgical life of the Orthodox Church ebbs and flows right over the boundaries of 30-day months. Using a calendar governed by months limits your ability to see a whole Church season at once. This calendar’s spreads are governed by the feasts and fasts that structure the Orthodox year, which results in seven sections of varying length.


  • Designed to hang on the wall, open it measures 12" x 24" (30.5 x 61 cm)

  • Seven spreads ranging in length from six to ten weeks

  • Original images from Serbia, Kosovo, and North Macedonia

  • Spacious squares for personal planning 

  • Light shading on traditional fast days 

  • Ornamentation indicating major feast days

  • US holidays and observances and European week numbering

  • Commemoration of over 100 beloved saints, with special emphasis on Serbian saints

  • Significant feast days from the alternate calendar (Old or New), indicated in italics

  • Photography by Andrew Gould, Thomaida Hudanish, Kim Piotrowski, and Jeffrey Gomez

  • Ornaments and lettering by Gabriel Chapin @as_incense

Scripture readings, rubrics, and fasting details are not included.

This is the first time that a physical calendar has also become a devotional. It helps me understand the historical roots of my faith. - Anna, Roman Catholic


It is just the calendar I needed but didn't know I wanted! I just can't even heart it enough. - Kh. Nikki

I've enjoyed having this year's calendar in my work office, and, as a new convert to the Orthodox Church, it's really helped me get into the rhythm of the liturgical year.

- Kimberly

These calendars are beautiful and have lots of good information for the daily lives of Orthodox Christians. I love the way it’s broken up into liturgical seasons instead of months. I have purchased 5 of them now over the last two years! They make great gifts.
