Events / Retreats Calendar Policy

Beginning with the April 1, 2016 issue, The Criterion will begin its weekly Events Calendar with events starting on the Monday after the publication date. The Retreats Calendar will start with retreats occurring two weeks and beyond from the publication date.

While the amount of events included each week varies based on the number of submissions, an effort is made to always include at least one week’s worth of calendar events and a few retreats. However, a list of one month’s worth of events and a list of three months’ worth of retreats are always available by logging on to

Events and retreats can be submitted to The Criterion by logging on to, or by going to, selecting the Newspaper tab, then selecting “Send Us Information” from the menu, then selecting Events / Retreats.

If using the online form is not an option, please send events and retreats information to:
