New Calendar starts Dec 25, 2019 and ends Dec 31, 2020

Old Calendar starts Jan 1, 2020 and ends Jan 7, 2021.


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.


  • 12" x 12" designed to hang on the wall (open 12" x 24")

  • Seven spreads ranging in length from six to ten weeks

  • Eleven original images from the Holy Land

  • Spacious squares for personal planning 

  • Light shading on traditional fast days 

  • Ornamentation indicating major feast days of Christ and the Mother of God

  • US holidays and observances

  • Commemoration of over 100 beloved saints

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

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

Calendar is $20


Submit your order by mail or e-mail below.

Payment by check is preferred, though other arrangements can be made.
The calendar is also available at parish and monastery bookstores nationwide, 

and online at AncientFaith.

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
