Exclusive! These distinctive initial capitals were sold by the Cincinnati Type Foundry in the 1880s, and they saw use in Catholic books for decades, including the Manual of Prayers of the Third Plenary Council of Baltimore and the prayer books and missals of Rev. Francis Xavier Lasance (1860-1946).
This one-of-a-kind liturgical calendar combines the traditional Catholic feasts of the United States with more recently canonized national saints like St. Katherine Drexel and St. Kateri.

Each month features the paintings of American artist Benjamin West and excerpts from the prayers of the season.
