Calendar Software

Dear Computer Lady,

Is there a program out there that I use to print my own calendars for planning out Church events?

I’m using windows 10 and while free would be nice I don’t mind paying if it’s what I need.

Thanks, John

Dear John,

I have two options for you. The first is free, open source software that might be a little hard to use, and the second is paid software that comes with calendar templates.

First, lets look at Scribus at
This is a free, open source desktop publishing program. There is no cost to download and install it on your computer.

I did download Scribus and played around with creating a calendar. It was very basic, and not very easy to make changes to the calendar template, but it does work.

Second, is a desktop publishing program like PrintMaster or PrintShop at:
You will even find a program called, Calendar Creator on the Broderbund site.

I hope this helps you find the software you are looking for.

    Office 2013/10/07 has a very simple Calendar “SmartArt”. You can find it in the Other category.

    Word 2013 comes with a lesson plan calendar template.

    Grex Maxley has a lot of good information, including a free Office calendar maker addin:

    MS templates site:

    I’ve used this one myself for a few years, check the tabs for alternate views:

    Google is your friend … There are lots of free calendars out there, just search for one that matches your specific needs.

    I’ve been successful using Google Calendar for something similar to what John needs. Can use it on desktop computer, tablet or my cell phone. The only drawback was I needed to be online. Finally I found a calculation for a yearly calendar utilizing MS Excel and modified it to work with Libreoffce Calc. First tab prints out a yearly calendar then there are 12 tabs one for each month with room to type in data or pencil data in if doing it manually.
