Calendar for the Liturgical Year QUESTION from Miriam Dapra July 20, 2000 Perhaps this is not the right place to ask, but as it's related, here goes:
In the front of the Saint Joseph Missal (DSP), there is a calendar that outlines which Sunday is what in relation to the liturgical year. But it only goes up to 1999 (at least, the one in my copy only goes that far).
Do you know if someone has published a new calendar, for, say, the next 5 or 10 years, and if so, who, and how I can get hold of some copies of it? It is MOST helpful in figuring out what week we're in right after Epiphany and Easter, for instance.
Thanks for your help!
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, O.L.S.M. on July 21, 2000 Dear Miss Dapra:
The world was suppose to end in the year 2000. That's why all the charts end in 1999 :-)......sorry, couldn't resist, just joking!
Newly published Missals will of course include new calendars that will go from 2000 on forward.
You can always find the Liturgical Calendar in the Catholic Almanac (which you should be able to get at your local Catholic Bookstore for around $20), and there are also Liturgical Desk Calendars and Appointment Calendars.
There are various places online that will include the Liturgical Calendar. We haven't done that yet on our site but will be when we get the chance.
One central Online place to get the current Liturgical Calendar is the National Conference of Catholic Bishop. I have provided an address below that goes directly to the Committee on Liturgy that produces the Calendar.
