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 the island and monasteries of Patmos

  • Spiritual wisdom from St Amphilochios

  • Spacious squares for personal planning 

  • Light shading on traditional fast days 

  • Ornamentation indicating major feast days

  • US holidays and observances

  • Commemoration of over 100 beloved saints, including newly canonized saints

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

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