Just in time for the start of the liturgical year, the Society of Saint Pius X publishes the most complete liturgical calendar online. This calendar follows the liturgical books of 1962 which Pope Benedict XVI authorized for use in the Universal Church. The Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) offers this service to all priests, to those who serve at the altar and in the sacristy, as well as to all those that are attached to the Church's traditional liturgy.
Update: The online ordo now contains blessings and rites.
For the first time ever, a full iturgical calendar is at the tip of your finger. In the future you can access this calendar on all devices: PCs, Macs, tablets, and phones. It includes all liturgical instructions for Mass and the Breviary. Built as a web app, the calender is primarily built for handheld devices. The SSPX is proud to offer this as a service to the Church, for all, for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. Simply go to:
