Additional calendars may be ordered for $20.00 per copy, which includes postage and handling. To order, send a check payable to the “Orthodox Church in America” to PO Box 675, Syosset, NY 11791.

The calendar includes ample space for daily notations and memos and a mini-directory of OCA ministries, departments, boards, commissions, diocesan chanceries, and seminaries. Key liturgical commemorations and significant dates for the year are noted.
Featured in this year’s calendar are brief reflections taken from the writings of the late Protopresbyter Alexander Schmemann in anticipation of the 19th All-American Council in July 2018. The Council theme—“For the Life of the World”—is inspired by Father Alexander’s classic book of the same name.
