Calendar

Calendar of Celtic and Old English Saints of the Orthodox Church

In the following calendar, the Church date is listed first, followed by the corresponding date on the civil calendar. Of course, for those following the Gregorian or Revised Julian calendars, the first date listed is both the Church and civil date. Note that since the various local Orthodox Churches in the British Isles developed slightly different liturgical calendars, some saints appear on two or more dates. In these cases, the listings are cross-referenced, and an asterisk before the saint's name indicates the date is not the main commemoration.

Please send amendments and suggestions to info@orthodoxireland.com.
