PLEASE NOTE! We have removed those from the list that we believe no longer should be present there. If you requested that someone be included in this list please review it carefully to make sure we have not removed someone erroneously. If we have, please contact Fr.

Diocesan Fund for those Those in Need of Assistance Collection is this Sunday 
22/11/14, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
This Sunday marks the annual collection for the diocesan fund for those in need of assistance. As the diocesan secretary Fr. Gregoryk can vouch for the fact that this fund is one that is used often. In general these funds are used to help those who are not covered by the St. John Kochurov Fund (that fund covers Missions, Monasteries, and Youth), but who are nonetheless in great need. Your generosity at this time of thanks (Thanksgiving is just around the corner and this collection is timed to coincide with that holiday) is greatly appreciated by the diocese, and by those members of the diocese who find themselves in circumstances of privation. If you are unable to join us for this Sunday's liturgy please contact our Starosta to make a contribution to this fund before or after the fact. Thank you!

Welcoming Others to Church - Everyone's Job (You Too!) 
22/11/14, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
You can only make a first impression once. That is why it is so important, and the responsibility of EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US, to warmly welcome visitors to our parish. Is the visitor not acting “appropriately”? Assure them that all will be fine and lovingly help. Is the visitor’s child fussy? Assure them that we welcome children in the church and not to worry. If they ask for a place to go to quiet the child please point out the nursery – do not push them out the door. Does the visitor have questions? Answer them if possible, and if not, refer them to someone who can. A smile and a welcoming word can make the difference in someone’s spiritual life both in this life and the next. Let us show love one to another so that people will know that we are Christ’s disciples! We want to be known for our warm hospitality as was Abraham – but we all must work together to make our parish as welcoming as we possibly can!

Help Fr. Gregory Serve our Russian Speaking Parishioners 
21/11/14, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
We would like to offer a weekly "mini-bulletin" with translations of the scriptures read on the weekend into Russian, as well as a short sermon on the theme of the Sunday Gospel reading in Russian. These would be available for distribution at our kiosk for those who do not understand English well. This is not a large population in our parish (almost all of our native Russian speakers also speak English fluently), but there are a few people that this mini-bulletin will benefit. If you would like to help Fr. Gregory prepare this mini-bulletin please contact him. No translation will be necessary, but a working knowledge of Russian and of MS Word or other similar word processor will be needed. Thank you in advance for assisting with this important ministry!

Pious Behavior in Church + 3 Lampadas 
21/11/14, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Of course we should behave appropriately in church and we believe that everyone WANTS to behave appropriately, but sometimes we don’t know or we forget about the special times in the Divine Service when we should not move about or other important aspects of our worship. We include below a little pamphlet which reminds us of these things, and which also outlines the schema of the lights above the royal doors at St. Vladimir’s (which the outside lamps are lit we should not move about unless it is a matter of life and death). Please review this pamphlet and please see Fr. Gregory with questions. We appreciate sincerely your efforts to behave appropriately in the parish church during the Divine Services!

Visit the Sick and the Homebound 
20/11/14, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Do you have 10 extra minutes per week? Could you put those ten extra minutes per week together once per month to visit one of our parishioners in the hospital or unable to leave their home? If so – please contact Fr. Gregory! Your 30 to 40 minutes per month could make the difference in someone’s life! Members of our parish family deserve better than to be lonely! Train your children in the pious Christian virtue of caring for those less fortunate – visit our parish family members in the hospital, nursing home, and at home this month! Those who are aware of parish family members who are in hospitals, nursing homes, or who are home-bound should contact Fr. Gregory so that these parishioners may be added to our list of those to be visited and spiritually cared for.

We have a special web page at St. Vladimir's that is set up to facilitate commemoration of our friends and loved ones at the Divine Liturgy – THIS IS THE SINGLE BEST WAY TO PRAY FOR THEM. The page can be found a this address:

http://stvladimiraami.org/commemoration ... ions.shtml

There are several ways listed on that page to assure that your friends and loved ones are being prayed for at the Divine Services at St. Vladimir's. Another is to use this Google Doc to send us their names:
