About the Calendar Dates

The feast days shown on this calendar in bold, blue type are the twelve great feast days of the Orthodox Church. Other feast days of some of the most popularly venerated saints of the Orthodox Churches around the world are listed in black, regular type. Dates are listed according to the Julian or “old” calendar. (Note: A different version of this calendar is available which makes use of the Gregorian or “new” calendar dates.) The date for Pascha (commonly known as Easter in the West) falls on April 8 in 2018. (The date for Western Easter falls on April 1 in 2018; only occasionally does the celebration of the Resurrection of Christ occur on the same date in East and West.)

Many days throughout the Orthodox church year are designated as fast days (on which we refrain from eating meat products, milk products, fish, wine, and oil). These fast days, marked in red type, include the four canonical fasting seasons (Great Lent, the Apostles’ fast, the Dormition fast, and the Advent fast), as well as almost every Wednesday and Friday. When a major feast falls during a fasting season, fish, wine & oil are allowed. In addition, there are also several fast-free weeks and other special fast days. Because fast day designations vary slightly from church to church, consult your local parish for further details.

Note: this calendar uses dates according to the old or Julian calendar — for the new or Gregorian calendar edition, see:
