The 2022 Desk Calendar of the Orthodox Church in America is currently in print and is now also fully available in PDF format (Single Page view; Double Page view). Complimentary copies, once again, are being sent to all priests and deacons—assigned, attached, and retired—as well as clergy widows and monastic institutions during the coming two to three weeks. 

Additional hard copies may be requested for a $20.00 donation per copy to offset costs of printing and shipping. To order, send a check payable to the “Orthodox Church in America” to PO Box 675, Syosset, NY 11791.  Payment also may be made by credit card over the phone by contacting Executive Administrator Barry Migyanko directly at 516-922-0550, x133, or by sending an email to 

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 historical dates for the year are also noted. The Desk Calendar also highlights the dates of the 20th All-American Council but does not include diocesan and national events such as diocesan assemblies, seminary commencement dates, Holy Synod and Metropolitan Council meetings. These dates are indicated on the Web Calendar of our website’s homepage.

The quotes in this year’s Desk Calendar are from Metropolitan Leonty’s “Seven Gifts,” a sermon the late Metropolitan gave in 1953 at the elevation of Father Alexander Schmemann to the rank of Archpriest.

Advertising order forms will be included with the 2022 OCA Desk Calendar mailing. Plans continue for the 20th All-American Council which will be held in Baltimore, MD on July 18-22, 2022. Once again, the Fellowship of Orthodox Christians in America (FOCA) will hold their 95th National Convention immediately preceding the AAC.  In a combined effort, members of the FOCA will manage the advertising sales and production of the Commemorative Program Book which will be shared across both events.  Proceeds of the program book will be evenly split between the FOCA and the OCA with the OCA portion supplementing the youth activities at the AAC.

NOTE: Any clergy or widow who has not received their copy by November 20, 2021 should contact Barry Migyanko. If your address has changed and you have not communicated it to our office yet, please contact Mr. Migyanko.
