Year of Grace Calendar 2023

Catherine Pape

Featuring Australian dates and Saints!

This year’s calendar for 2023 presents the cheerful, colourful art of Catherine Pape. Her illustrations of blessings in Catholic family and community life focus on some of the many blessing practices rooted in tradition and lovingly passed on through generations: the blessing of a home and of an advent wreath, of food at a soup kitchen or at a family table, of children by parents as they depart for the day, and of crops, animals, and farm equipment. All of these scenes depict little celebrations of the ways we are blessed and protected by God. Such blessings keep us mindful of God’s love and guidance, and they model for our children one way that Catholics try to stay open and aware of God’s presence in our ordinary lives.

The Year of Grace Calendar 2023 follows the Sunday Year A cycle and the Weekday Year I cycle, beginning on November 27, 2022 (First Sunday of Advent) and ending on Saturday, December 3, 2023. The circular display of the liturgical year makes its key features easily understandable. You can see at a glance the liturgical seasons in their characteristic colours, Sundays on the outer rim, and the days and weeks radiating from the centre.

With the Year of Grace Calendar, you can:

  • Give (or sell) one to every household in the parish and school.

  • Hang one in every classroom, meeting room, and in the church vestibule to teach about the liturgical year.

  • Assign students to report on specific liturgical days.

  • Present calendars to first communicants and Confirmation candidates.

Each copy of the Year of Grace Calendar comes with a 'How to Use' booklet with information about the art and questions for discussion.

The Year of Grace 2023 poster is approx 64 x 64 cms and is printed on Yupo. Yupo is a recyclable, waterproof, tree-free synthetic paper that will not tear, is durable, wipes clean and is waterproof.
