We congratulate the newly-weds, their families, friends, and loved ones and wish for them many years, much health, and salvation! Please remember Benjamin and Elizabeth in your prayers as they begin their life together and the hard work that it takes to be an exemplary Christian family. Many years to Benjamin and Elizabeth!

Thank you to all our St. Vladimir's family and friends! On Sunday, November 22, 2015 - International Orthodox Christian Charities Giving Sunday - we collected over $1000 to support IOCC's crucial mission of service to all in need throughout the world! Way to go St. Vladimirians! If you had hoped to help but couldn't make it to St. Vladimir's because of the heavy snowfall please contact our Treasurer, Andrei Rodzianko, or our IOCC Coordinator, Marina Edwards. They can help you direct your gift to the IOCC. May the Lord reward you all for your support of the poor and the suffering through the auspices of IOCC!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week  
22/11/15, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable – others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: I Timothy 1:1-7 & Luke 12:13-15,22-31
Tuesday: I Timothy 1:8-14 & Luke 12:42-48
Wednesday: I Timothy 1:18-20,2:8-15 & Luke 12:48-59
Thursday: I Timothy 3:1-13 & Luke 13:-1-9
Friday: I Timothy 4:4-8,16 & Luke 13:31-35
Saturday: Colossians 1:3-6 & Luke 9:37-43

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

By St. Justin (Popovich):


By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):


This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:


As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:

Yes - Liturgy this Morning 
22/11/15, 05:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
The snow has stopped and although it is probably a prudent idea to give oneself a bit more travel time this morning, we will hold Liturgy at St. Vladimir's as scheduled today. Drive safely! See you soon at St. Vladimir's!
