The Liturgy and Appointment Calendar 2013 is a useful, annual resource which helps organise your busy life and schedules. The calendar is formatted with enough room to record all of your meetings and appointments. This calendar helps you celebrate the liturgy each day.
The calendar works like a mini-ordo – each day includes the liturgical observance, the readings from the Daily Mass with citations from the Lectionary for Mass, the proper liturgical colours, 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 others).
The Liturgy and Appointment Calendar 2013 is an easy-to-use reference guide for liturgical preparation, organising 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
- Pastoral associates
- Directors of worship
- Directors of music and liturgical musicians
- Religious educators
- Parish secretary/administrative staff
- Catholic institutions and businesses
- Worship team members.
The liturgical information provided follows the norms prescribed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on the Liturgy. Celebrations proper to the dioceses of Canada have also been included, as well as secular observances for Canada, Mexico, and Australia. The calendar is beautifully illustrated with art from Clip Art for Years A, Band C by Stephen Erspamer, a collection of reproducible liturgical art published by LTP.
