MIC Liturgical Calendar

The commemorations of the Patrons of the entire Congregation, individual Province, Vicariate, house or apostolate should be celebrated. In accordance with the Marian Calendar, the titular (patronal) solemnity of the Congregation, as well as the feasts of our Founder and our Renovator, should be celebrated in a special way. These may be preceded by appropriate novenas or triduums. D 3

In the course of the liturgical year, let the confreres strive to direct their attention to those celebrations that correspond to the character and spirituality of the Congregation and are more related to it. In addition to their own patrons, let them especially venerate the saints of that region in which they live and work. In the liturgy, it is recommended that they follow the Congregation’s own calendar and the diocesan calendar. D 34
