This Revised Common Lectionary website provides iCalendar files of Weekly and Daily readings for your personal calendar. iCalendar is a standard file format that all major calendaring applications support.

ALERT: You will not be able to make any local changes to this calendar, as it is read-only. New liturgical years will automatically appear as they are loaded onto the Lectionary website.

ALERT: When adding the URLs below to your calendar, please do not use the Import feature in your calendar software. If the URLs are imported, the calendar entries cannot be removed except manually one by one.

General Instructions

All the software processing for the calendar entries happens within the specific calendar application. The Revised Common Lectionary website only provides the URL.

Weekly calendar feed URL:
iCalendar iconwebcal://

Daily calendar feed URL:
iCalendar iconwebcal://

NOTE: If your calendaring application does not accept this URL, please try replacing webcal:// with http://.
