Catholic Almanac Turns 100

From toledoblade.com:

The 2004 edition marks the 100th anniversary of the publication, which began as St. Antony’s Almanac in 1904. The inaugural 64-page almanac included a calendar and feature articles on prayer and devotion, but its primary purpose was to foster knowledge and understanding of St. Anthony of Padua, the 13th century Portuguese preacher and first theologian of the Franciscan Order.

Our Sunday Visitor publishes the Almanac.
