How to refresh Windows 8 calendar app?

My Win 8 calendar app does not refresh: I have Microsoft account and Google account calendar there, and although I added an event in Google calendar, it does not show it. Google calendar online, synced Outlook 2013 calendar, and my cell phone, all show this event, but Win 8 modern desktop calendar app does not show it. Is there any way to refresh it or make it sync properly?
