Lesser Feasts and Fasts, and additions from A Great Cloud of Witnesses

Note: The last calendar to be given final approval for use in The Episcopal Church was Lesser Feasts and Fasts, 2006. In 2009, Holy Women, Holy Men, a new calendar, introduced a large number of new commemorations, but that work was not given final approval at the General Convention of 2012. In 2015, at the General Convention, another calendar, entitled A Great Cloud of Witnesses, was presented which incorporated much of Holy Women, Holy Men. It was approved on first presentation and it may be given final approval at the Convention in 2018. Until then, the additions and changes to the calendar of Lesser Feasts and Fasts, 2006 remain provisional. In the calendar below, the commemorations (and alternate dates) approved only for trial use are shown in square brackets.
