The Department of Communications is now taking orders for the 2016 Parish Ecclesiastical Calendar, an annual resource of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The calendar is prepared and distributed by the Department of Communications and the Department of Internet Ministries. Last year more than 400 parishes ordered this high-quality, educational resource for use by their parishioners.
The 2016 calendar is a full-color, twelve-month folding wall calendar. When open, the top half features full color icons, hymns, and Internet resources for each month of the year. The bottom half features the calendar itself. Each day in the calendar includes the names of saints in Greek and English, a fasting guide, and scripture readings and commemorations following the liturgical protocol of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. Major feast and saint days also include thumbnail icons.
The calendar comes with a "backer" which, when the calendar is fully opened, extends below the bottom of the calendar. This extension is designed so that the name, logo, and contact information of the parish and/or a sponsor can be printed on it. The calendars are shipped with this extension scored and folded so that the calendar can be mailed in standard envelopes.
In July 2015, the Department of Communications mailed an information packet about the calendar to each parish. This packet included a letter, a Calendar Fact Sheet to answer questions about ordering calendars for your parish, and a sample calendar page with an order form on the back.
If your parish ordered calendars last year, this packet included a proof from your 2015 calendar order. If you would like to make changes to your proof, please do so and include it with your order. No charges will apply for text changes; however if you wish to change a logo for the parish or the sponsor, please include the Logo Set-up fee with your order.
We hope that this quality resource will assist you in your ministry and contribute to the spiritual growth of your parishioners.
