This calendar project began in 1983 in the village of Nikolaevsk, Alaska by Rev. Pavel Fefelov. Russian Old believers needed a calendar to live by day to day. All of the information is compiled into the calendar according to those who live by the faith. It has been made annually, as a guide to the Old Believers traditional way of life, including all celebrated holidays, weekly liturgy reading, periods of lent, specific fasting requirements of days, and words of scripture, in both Russian and English languages.
The paper format of the calendars ended as of the 2018 year. We got such an unexpected number of requests to make the 2019 Russian Orthodox Old-Rite Calendar that Rev. Pavel finally agreed. As a Christmas present to all, a digital copy will be available, month by month in .jpg format. God Bless you in this festive season.
Hard copies of the 2019 calendar will not be sold this year. Rev. Vasily with our church in Melbourne, Australia began publishing for our Russian Orthodox Old-Rite Church Diocese of Australia, Canada and America, so Rev. Pavel Fefelov, chose not to publish hard copies this year to help our diocese. Fortunately, our church in Gervais Oregon, Church of the Holy Ascension, does have a limited supply of the published 12 month 2019 calendar from Australia available for purchase. You will need to please contact our parishioner Jonah Reutov directly and he can help with getting the hard copy created by Rev. Vasily.
With such an unexpected response requesting our calendar copies, Rev. Pavel gives permission to download the .jpeg files and print them in color at your local printer, as they are in the same size 11x17 as previously published. No unauthorized reselling of the calendar images. All Rights Reserved.
