Free Digital Lutheran Liturgical Calendar

For many years, Concordia Publishing House has distributed, each year,
to all rostered LCMS church workers a free “pocket diary.” It has been
an essential part of the daily life of so many. But the times, they are
a-changing, and for more and more of us a printed calendar has been
replaced with various digital devices. This year, for the first time,
Concordia Publishing House is offering a free digital edition of the
Pocket Diary.

While we are unable to support every digital device with this free
resource, the format in which it is being offered allows the vast
majority of digital calendar users the opportunity to use the digital
diary and with Google Calendar, everyone who has access to the Internet
can access the digital Pocket Diary and have daily e-mails sent to them
reminding them of what is on their calendar. The other major option is to subscribe to the Google Calendar in Microsoft Outlook Calendar or iCal, and between these two formats, the
majority of digital devices will be able to use the digital Pocket
Diary.

Due to the nature of this resource being provided free of charge, we are not offering any technical support, so kindly do not call CPH or contact us for technical support.

We do have a comprehensive explanation available on how to use it and
hundreds have already availed themselves of it with no problem.

So, for your free digital edition of the Concordia Publishing House Pocket Diary, please visit this web site. Enjoy!

    This is great!
    I wrote my own basic liturgical calculator years ago, and recently ported it to Python. Currently it only reports the old Sarum rite calendar contained in the TLH, but I already have the code in place to report the Galican rite instead (Sundays after Pentecost + extended Easter), and just have to add the “plumbing” to make it an option. (It’s here if anyone cares: http://olcc.us/resources/liturgical-calc ). The iCal feed is an excellent idea, and I’m thrilled that CPH did this.
    Thank you CPH!

    Sweet – it’s on iCal and with the magic of “cloud” it should be on all my Macs and iPod.
    Great deal. Thank YOU!!!

    Very useful. I have subscribed to this calendar and will use it often in my own preparations.
    Can I suggest adding the LSB Hymn of the Day to the event description? (http://www.lcms.org/pages/internal.asp?NavID=11113) It would be nice for me to see the suggested hymn beside the lectionary readings.
