Each year, the Secretariat of Divine Worship of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops publishes the Liturgical Calendar for the Dioceses of the United States of America. This calendar is used by authors of ordines and other liturgical aids published to foster the celebration of the liturgy in our country.
The calendar is based upon the General Roman Calendar, promulgated by Pope Paul VI on February 14, 1969, subsequently amended by Pope John Paul II, and the Proper Calendar for the Dioceses of the United States of America, approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and confirmed by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments (Prot. n. 578/10/L, July 24, 2010).
The USCCB Secretariat of Divine Worship has prepared the 2016 and 2017 editions of the Liturgical Calendar for the Dioceses of the United States of America. The calendar lists each day's celebration, rank, liturgical color, Lectionary citations, and Psalter cycle (for the Liturgy of the Hours).
The Liturgical Calendar can be purchased by writing to:
USCCB – Divine Worship

Washington, DC 20017
