Calendars

Predominantly, there are three calendars in use in the greater church today.

  1. Julian Calendar (‘Old Calendar’)
  2. Revised Julian Calendar (‘New Calendar’)
  3. Gregorian Calendar

NB: ChurchDays.com refers only to the Gregorian (modern western) calendar unless stated otherwise.

Definitions:

These definitions, in alphabetical order, relate specifically to this website, not categorically to churches in general.

  1. Catholic – specifically the Roman Catholic Church.
  2. Eastern - generally, most eastern churches; most Eastern Orthodox Churches; not all.
  3. Protestant - most churches that are not Roman Catholic. Dates are taken from Anglican calendars but other denominations are being researched as the calendars grow.
  4. Western - Generally Roman Catholic and Protestant Churches, but not usually those included in ‘Eastern’.

Disclaimer of Calendars:

Church Days dates, and information about Church Days, vary between denominations, variants of denominations, geographic regions, and even between individual churches within a locality. Before planning any event or recognition of a Church Day, check with your own church as to the local calendar and schedule.
