 “The wealth of the Orthodox Calendar, with its inspiring commemorations, is so great that on any day one can begin the holy task which St. Herman gave to us as a testament to Orthodoxy on this continent—‘From this day, from this hour, from this minute let us strive to love God above all.’ May every day be for us such a beginning!” —Hieromonk Seraphim Rose

The 2023 St. Herman Calendar is dedicated to the history of Orthodoxy in the Russian region of Vologda.

The lead article relates the rich history of Orthodox Christianity in Vologda, a region of Russia about the size of the American state of Iowa, located in the northern part of European Russia. This history stretches from the middle of the twelfth century to the present time. Vologda at one time contained so many monasteries that one nineteenth-century writer referred to it as the “Northern Thebaid.” Also included in the 2023 Calendar are brief biographies of some of the saints who shone forth in this region.
