Save the EpiscoCat Calendar“Meow culpa.” Mourn-no-more cat lovers.

Rising from the crowded cutting room floor, the canceled cat calendar that caused a church-wide hairball crisis is BACK!

  • Donations of $50 or more will receive 4 calendars, and a one-year email subscription to Forward Day by Day

Forward Movement will also accept photo submissions to be included in the Episcocat Calendar through May 2017 (guidelines below). Please note, a donation does not guarantee that your photo will be selected for the calendar.

The EpiscoCat calendar is a collaboration between faithful readers, their beloved cats, and Forward Movement. This thirteen-month calendar (December 2017-December 2018) includes all the major feasts of the Episcopal Church, color-coded to coordinate with the liturgical seasons. Photos of esteemed felines from around the church—along with humorous captions—make this unique calendar a perfect gift for the Episcopal cat lover in the office, at home, or for yourself.
