The Feasts, Festivals and Commemorations on The LCMS Church Year Calendar

I don’t know about you, but if you are like me, you have found it a tad frustrating at times trying to piece together the calendar dates on which fall the feasts, festivals and commemorations on The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Church Year calendar. My colleague, Rev. Scot Kinnaman, the MasterMind behind the Treasury of Daily Prayer and other various and sundry helpful Church Year and worship resources, shared with me a file he created to put everything all together in one place. And here you go:  in Word .docx, Word .doc, .txt, .rtf, and PDF. If you want in a different version, you are kindly invited to make it yourself! <g>

    Just FYI, The Office 2007 (.docx) link prompted me to download a .zip file containing various folders and garbage XML files. Maybe it needs to be uploaded again.

    I just downloaded the file in another format so I’m not that distraught over it.

    Just out of curiousity, I tried to download the Office 07 version using Firefox and was successful. Maybe the issue is related to Internet Explorer.

    I am curious, Pr. McCain… several of the New Testament saints (and all of the OT saints) have no propers in TDP (other than a bio and a collect) or in the Proper of the Year book I picked up from CPH. Silas, for example, as well as Lydia, Dorcas, and Phoebe. I am curious, with them having actual biblical citations that could be proclaimed, why they are not provided with full propers.

    Is it because they are not historically a part of the older Lutheran orders, or is it another matter altogether? It just seems odd for biblical figures to be treated more differently than later figures.

      Sorry, Rob, I can’t answer that one. Our Synod’s Commission on Worship created the extra days in the “commemoration” section of our Church Year calendar. If anyone reading this knows of the process by which persons were included in the various lists, please let us know. Many thanks.
