Sound familiar? The 2013 Liturgy and Appointment Calendar is a useful, annual resource which helps organize your very busy life and schedules. The calendar is formatted with enough room to record all of your meetings and appointments. This 13-month calendar runs from the First Sunday of Advent until the last Saturday of Ordinary Time.
This calendar helps you celebrate the liturgy each day! The calendar works like a mini-ordo--each day includes the liturgical observance (i.e. First Sunday of Advent, memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows, etc); the readings from the Daily Mass with citations from the Lectionary for Mass, the proper liturgical colors, as well as the psalter for the Liturgy of the Hours.
The calendar also includes other Catholic events and observances such as holy days of obligation, First Friday and Saturday devotions, popular novenas, USCCB national and international collections, Catechetical Sunday, Respect Life Sunday, and World Youth Day (among many, many others).
Secular and other religious observances are noted as well.
The 2013 Liturgy and Appointment Calendar is an easy-to-use reference guide for liturgical preparation, organizing parish events within the liturgical year, and scheduling your personal, spiritual, and work life. It is essential for those actively involved in Church ministry and for lay Catholics, especially:
Pastors and deacons
Directors of worship
Directors of music and liturgical musicians
Directors of religious education/youth ministry
Parish secretary/administrative staff
Catholic institutions and businesses
