Not *exactly* sure I understand what you want, but if you want to set
permissions for an entire group, you need a page
Group.GroupAttributes, and set the attributes on that:
Set the read password to what you'd like, and it will be used across
the Calendar group. (Again, assuming that's what you want.) If you
want some pages in the Calendar group readable, I *think* you can set
attributes for those individual pages and that will override what is
set in Calendar.GroupAttributes.

If you bring up SiteAdmin.AuthList, you can see the setting for all
the pages in the wiki.
