Calendar and Lectionary for 2014: (the liturgical year beginning on Advent Sunday 2013, and ending on the eve of Advent Sunday 2014).

Also under development, alongside the calendar download, is a new Almanac and Daily Office app for iOS, Android and desktops which will include the text of all the readings and which I hope will be available soon.

If you would like to be notified when the next Almanac is available, and are not already on my notification list, please email If you have received notice in previous years and have not changed your email address then you are still on my list.

Previous years

For calendar data for earlier years, see the archive page.

The Sanctorale

Alternatively, the calendar is available as a Datebook archive of the fixed dates or Sanctorale. In this version, each commemoration appears on its date in the calendar in all years from 1997. This means that the data is available for future years, but it does not take into account the interaction with the Temporale.

File Formats and Data Sources

These almanacs are available in a number of formats, including for Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCal, Palm Datebook, and for other vCalendar-compatible calendar applications.

All these calendar files are intended to comply fully with the Calendar and Rules to Order the Service of the Church of England. No other Calendars are used or merged with the data.


For information on how to use these files, the data they contain or how to make further suggestions, see this Instructions page.


These files are made available free of charge. Furthermore I disclaim all responsibility for any consequences of any errors in the files. My liability is limited to making available an updated version of the archive as and when I am able to do so. Please help by pointing out any errors.
