MIC LITURGICAL CALENDAR
A.D. 2017

In the course of the liturgical year, the confreres should strive to direct their attention to those celebrations [liturgical commemorations] that correspond to the character and spirituality of the Congregation, and are more related to it. In addition to its own patrons, the confreres should especially venerate the saints of that region in which they live and work. It is recommended that in liturgy, they follow the diocesan calendar. (D 27; cf. C 16, 17, 67)
