Dominican Rite Calendar for 2020 Available

First Page of the 2020 Calendar
I am pleased to announce that the new Dominican Rite Calendar for A.D. 2020 is now ready. It can be downloaded from the left side-bar at Dominican Liturgy.

This calendar includes the feasts of the Dominican General Calendar in use in 1962, as well as feasts proper to the United States (on their days as in 1962). In addition, Saints and Blesseds added to the Dominican calendar since 1962 are included, following the revised Dominican calendar of April 2019. On the right side of the pages, the propers of Saints whose dates were changed in 1960 and suitable commons for those beatified or canonized after 1962 are indicated for the Missals of 1933, 1939, and 1965.

Furthermore, an appendix is included which gives the feasts proper to each diocese in the United States where a Dominican priory or house is located. A second appendix lists the many “minor” Blesseds who are appointed for celebration only in their proper provinces.

I am posting this now, at the beginning of December, so that my friar brothers (and others interested) can alert me to any mistakes, with an eye to correcting them before January 1, 2020. I thank you all for your help in this matter.
