NEW YORK – Orders are now being taken for the 2014 Parish Ecclesiastical Calendars, an annual resource published by the Department of Communications of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The Calendar will feature full-color icons, the names of Saints in Greek and English, a fasting guide, and daily Scripture readings and commemorations following the liturgical protocol of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. In addition, thumbnail icons on major feast and saint days, fasting symbols, resources found on the Archdiocese website, and an Internet Guide for Orthodox Christians are also included.
Each full-color calendar is a 12-month wall calendar with a “backer” that can be customized with the name, logo, and contact information of the parish, as well as the name, logo, and contact information of a calendar sponsor. The extension is scored and folded by the printer so that the calendar can be mailed in standard 9 x 12 mailing envelopes.
A discount is currently available for all orders with payment received by September 1, 2013. The order deadline is September 15 with a minimum order of 50 calendars required. Calendars will be shipped to parishes by early December 2013.
