Monday, September 18 2000

(CCCB – Ottawa) The Publications Service of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has just released Liturgical Calendar 2000-2001, an important reference tool for Canadian Catholics.

The Liturgical Calendar is a guide and calendar giving helpful information for the daily celebration of the Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours. With its easy-to-read design and detachable pages, it is a valuable planning resource for the preparation of all celebrations.

The 2000-2001 edition is for all people who prepare the liturgy, especially pastors, liturgy committees, and those involved in music ministry. This resource offers full explanatory notes and information for each day from the beginning of Advent 2000 to the end of Ordinary Time in 2001.

The 228-page book contains references and useful information for liturgical celebrations for every day of the year. It lists major national celebrations, World Days and proper feasts for different dioceses across Canada, such as the anniversary of the dedication of a cathedral, feast of the patron saint of a diocese, and the anniversary of the episcopal ordination of a bishop.

In addition, the pastoral notes at the beginning of the book contain a wealth of information and offer practical ideas and suggestions to help unleash the dynamic power of the liturgy, so that the believing community’s worship may guide its daily life.

The Liturgical Calendar 2000-2001 may be ordered at a cost of $9.95 plus tax through CCCB Publications Service at 1-800-769-1147, or by fax at 1-613-241-5090.
