Published by The Apostolic Vicariate of Northern Arabia

The AVONA Liturgical Calendar is meant to supplement the Liturgical Ordo that is currently used in all the Parishes of the Apostolic Vicariate of Northern Arabia (AVONA), for consultation on obligatory celebrations and those proper to the Vicariate.

1. View the Liturgical Calendar as an E-Book

2. Download the PDF document

3. Printing the Booklet:

You can print this multipage document as a booklet. Acrobat or Reader lays out the pages two per side (4 per sheet). When you collate, fold, and staple the double-sided sheets, the result is a single book with the correct page order. In all, you require 10 A4 size sheets for your booklet.

1. Download the PDF document.

2. Open the document in Adobe Reader.

3. Go to ----> Print

4. Select Page Setup -- Size A4

5. Under Page Sizing & Handling, choose Booklet.

6. In the Booklet Subset pop-up menu, select one of the following options: Both sides (duplex printers) automatically prints both sides of the paper, if your printer supports automatic duplex printing. Front side only / Back side only (for non-duplex printers) If your printer canít automatically print both sides, you can first print the front sides of the paper. Then reload those pages and print the back sides.

7. Depending on YOUR PRINTER, this step may or may not work for you: Select Auto-Rotate Pages to automatically rotate each page for the best fit in the printable area. With some pages this step, prints the booklet correctly, however, with some printers, every alternate page prints upside down! If this happens with your printer, uncheck the Auto-Rotate Pages and reprint the document. Please note that this problem occurs because of the printer and not the PDF document itself.

8. Click OK or Print.

2. Arrange the pages in the correct page sequence.

3. Align the centers of all the papers.

4. Mark where you want your holes to be. You will need three.

5. Poke a thick needle for the holes for easier threading.

6. Start by threading your string through the middle hole into the center of the book.

7. Follow the directions of the threading in the diagram.

8. Finally secure the ends in a knot.

Note: You can also staple the pages together.
