How was the current month and day disseminated to the townspeople of Medieval Europe?

How was the current month and day disseminated to the townspeople of the Medieval Europe? I'm quite sure that personal calendars weren't a thing back then... but I could be wrong... If they had a shared calendar... where was it stored and how did the information of the date get to the people from that location? I think it wasn't newsprint... as [Oldest Newspapers](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_oldest_newspapers) has the oldest European Newspaper start in 1605... It might be [Avvisi](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avviso), the precursor of European newspapers... but those only existed from 1500s onwards... and mainly for Italy...
