The Calendar screen shows you the complete calendar, day by day, with the feast or celebration for each day.

To go to a date you can see, tap on it.

To go to a date you can't see, scroll the display; or tap on "Go to Date..." at the bottom to bring up a date picker which will let you choose any date in any year.

To go to today's date, tap on "Go to Today" at the bottom of the screen.

Catholic Calendar only: To buy a month's worth of Universalis content, find the beginning of the month you want. Next to the name of the month you will see the word "Buy". Tap there, and you will be able to buy that month from the App Store. To allow you to try before you buy, the very first "purchase" you make in this way will be free.

Local calendars

There is a General Calendar, shared by the whole Church, and then there are local calendars which have saints and celebrations of more local interest. For example, Saint Benedict is celebrated with a memorial in the universal Church but with a feast in Europe, while Saint Willibrord, who isn't in the General Calendar at all, is celebrated with an optional memorial in some English dioceses and a solemnity in the Netherlands.

The name of the local calendar you are currently using is at the top of the screen. To choose a different calendar, tap on the calendar name at the top of the screen.

Not all local calendars are included in Universalis, but an increasing number are. Pick the one that looks best for you.
