Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
5/12/21, 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: II Thessalonians 1:1-10 & Luke 17:20-25
Tuesday: II Thessalonians 1:10-2:2 & Luke 17:26-37
Wednesday: II Thessalonians 2:1-12 & Luke 18:15-17,26-30
Thursday: II Thessalonians 2:13-3:5 & Luke 18:31-34
Friday: II Thessalonians 3:6-18 & Luke 19:12-28
Saturday: Galatians 1:3-10 & Luke 10:19-21

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

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirs + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
5/12/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Confession and Communion are the two sacraments we most often partake of as Orthodox Christians and thus it behooves us to learn about these, how to prepare for these, and how to best take advantage of the Grace that our Lord freely gives us in these sacraments. At St. Vladimirs we have created a special web site for this purpose with much information in this regard. Please find the web site listed below and please contact Fr. Gregory with questions!

Special Presentation & Update on A2OCA December 12 
4/12/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Sunday, December 12 marks the feast of St. Mardarije of Libertyville and Ann Arbor. THIS IS OUR ANN ARBOR SAINT! How many other cities in Michigan have their own saint? As of now that number is ZERO. We have a great blessing here, and a great responsibility! Let us begin by being present at the Divine Services for St. Mardarije, and to prepare for and partake of the Holy Mysteries this day!

St. Mardarije is the patron saint of our own Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy. On this day we will have the new icon of St. Mardarije available for veneration. This is an icon painted by Protodeacon Paul Drozdowski of St. Mardarije in an academic setting, which is completely appropriate given his life and work. But this will be the first icon in the world with St. Mardarije in this context. Fr. Colin will give a presentation about the life of St. Mardarije this day, and the A2OCA School Board will give a presentation on the school progress and plans going forward. Please plan to join us!
