In partnership with the Office of Institutional Equity, ITS is providing a quick method to add BMindful Holy Days to an electronic calendar. The calendar lists the major religious holy days where religious observers are likely to stay home from work or school. The calendar was reviewed and approved by the Consultation for Religious Communities of Johnson County and the Inter-Religious Council of Linn County. The local convention and visitors' bureau is committed to updating the calendar yearly to ensure event organizers have a list of dates through the upcoming four years.

Choose your calendar type below and follow the short instructions:
