Weekly Educational Offering 
22/3/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults. Parents are asked to review the childrens portion with their children. It is very important for us to attend the Divine Services on Sundays and whenever else we are able, but in addition it is our spiritual responsibility to educate ourselves and our families in the faith. It is our hope that this mid-week offering will be an aid in this regard. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or suggestions.

For Adults: an explanation of the Sunday's gospel reading by Blessed Theophylact:


For children, from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups):

Repose of Fr. Sergei Vishnevsky 
21/3/17, 05:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Today in Moscow Archpriest Sergei Vishnevsky reposed in the Lord at age 91. He had four sons, all of whom are priests themselves. And one of them is Fr. Pavel Vishnevky, who has been instrumental in our Russia with Love efforts. We ask that you remember the newly-reposed Fr. Sergei in your prayers during this 40 days, his 40th day being April 29, 2017. Please find here an interesting article about Fr. Sergei from the New York Times from 1993:

Michigan Deanery General Unction is April 4 
21/3/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

With the blessing of Archbishop Peter, the annual General Unction service for our Michigan Deanery will be held at St. Vladimir Church at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4. Please note that Unction is a Sacrament of the Holy Church. All are welcome to attend the service, but only Orthodox Christians may be anointed with the Holy Oil at the conclusion of the service. The Sacrament of Unction is tied very closely to both repentance and healing, and thus, although this sacrament is generally reserved for those who are very sick (to aid in their healing or their prayerful departure into the next life) the practice is to hold this service one time per year during Great Lent to strengthen all of us on our path towards spiritual healing through repentance the path we tread each year during Great Lent. IT IS IMPORTANT that you prepare yourself by confessing before this sacrament. Children who do not participate in the sacrament of Confession (those generally less than 7 years old) are not anointed at the General Unction service unless suffering from a serious illness. Please contact Fr. Gregory for more details.
