Learn about all the holidays that await Christians according to the church calendar (Orthodox or Greek Catholic) in April 2024.

The church calendar is a system that combines the annual cycle of transitional holidays (linked to Easter) and the cycle of non-transitional holidays and weekdays. The whole life of illiterate peasants was focused on the liturgical calendar. All the days that are important to them were not associated with the month and number, but with one or another saint. For example, beehives were exhibited in apiaries on Zosyma. Yes, people's lives were governed by the church calendar. Fasting is also of great importance for believers. Regardless of religion, the calendar is important for observing fasts, both Great and one-day fasts, as well as church holidays.

Please note that Ukraine has switched to the New Julian calendar. So the dates of the usual holidays were shifted to 2024. Therefore, Orthodox and Greek Catholic believers will celebrate them at the same time.
