Calendar and Lectionary Guide 2005/2006

A calendar, completely unlike the one used by the Church to work out which festival we should be celebrating this week.

Each year the Scottish Episcopal Church publishes a free guide to its calendar and lectionary. This guide helps to keep us clergy right throughout the year, as it lists each Sunday and major festival, with details such as its name (eg Week of 1 Advent), its category (1 through 6), its liturgical colour (eg Violet) and what Daily Prayer order should be used (eg DP Anticipation).

I’ve just finished formatting this booklet for the Web. For the first time, this document is now available for download in its entirety. It is available on the Liturgy page in HTML (webpage), A5 PDF booklet, and A4 PDF landscape formats.

Slowly but surely I’m getting through the various liturgy documents that need to go on the website. But it takes time. This one document took me about four hours.

  1. Hey Gareth, I was just wondering, do you use OCR software or do you type each document yourself, this may be a good investment for you so you only spend time formatting instead of replicating the content


  2. Hi James, thanks for your concern. I do use OCR (Optical Character Reader) software.

    It does take a long time simply *formatting* these documents. Most people that we get the documents from don’t use Styles in their word processing software, so that all has to be undone, then new styles created and applied.

    Not to mention typos fixed.
