  Common Worship Almanac and Lectionary for 2010--11

I am pleased to announce that my Common Worship almanac and lectionary 
for the year beginning Advent Sunday 2010 is now available.

You can download the lectionary file from <>
and follow the link to the 2011 files.

The lectionary is available in versions that can be imported into 
Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCal, Palm Desktop for both Windows and Mac, 
and other desktop calendar applications, and it can then be synchronized 
to PDAs, iPhones, and the like.This year there are options to include 
the Alternative Collects as well as the standard CW Collects and Post 
Communion prayers, and to include suggested liturgical colours. Another 
new option adds a link each day to a web page with further liturgical 
information. At present these extra pages are empty, but I plan in the 
near future to provide the texts of readings, and perhaps extracts from 
Exciting Holiness.

Naturally I hope that the data is free of errors, but as usual I must 
disclaim responsibility for the effects of any errors. My liability is 
limited to providing a corrected file for import, at my own convenience. 
Please help by notifying me of possible errors.


This Calendar and Lectionary is offered free of any charge. As you can 
imagine it takes some effort to compile, and a number of people have 
asked whether they can make some payment.

As last year, those who wish to make a contribution to my costs may 
donate Amazon gift vouchers. These can be purchased online at Amazon 
<> for 
delivery by email to /simon at

I want to reiterate that I am continuing to make no charge for 
downloading and using this Calendar and Lectionary -- this is just an 
opportunity to make an optional donation, if you so wish.

    Sunrise and Sunset

As in previous years, I also draw your attention to another utility to 
generate a calendar import file containing the times of sunrise and 
sunset for your location. Just enter a UK postcode, and the times will 
be calculated especially for you! Now you can determine whether it will 
be dark for your Easter vigil, wherever you are in the UK, not just in 
London. You can find this utility at <>

You are receiving this email because you have previously expressed an 
interest in receiving news about the availability of this lectionary. 
Should you no longer be interested then please drop me a line and I will 
remove your address from my list. I don't intend to sell your email 
address, and it will be used solely to notify you of the next lectionary 
or of important updates. (You can remove your name from the list or 
change the email address recorded for you via the web page at
