2020 Calendar of Liturgical Seasons

OVERTHROW THE TYRANNY OF MONTHS
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

This is the most inspiring thing I have ever seen.
BRILLIANT! What a beautiful pleasure to have seen the ultimate possibility of our life in Christ so beautifully before us! I am sure I want one for myself and every Godchild I am blessed to have.
I am thrilled with this calendar. The pictures are so interesting and the set up works so much better for our lives.
WOW. Gorgeous and meditative and efficient all at once! Thank you a thousand times over.
Beyond my wildest hopes I LOVE LOVE LOVE this calendar! I just got back from Israel and it is the perfect gift for the pilgrims who accompanied me. I am sure I haven't ordered enough! Nice balance of Saints.

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
