House Blessing Time Make Your Appointment Now! 
19/1/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Each year following the feast of the Theophany (the Lords Baptism January 19) it is a traditional and pious custom to have ones home blessed by the priest. Homes are blessed at St. Vladimirs until the beginning of Great Lent. Please visit this link to make an appointment:


Please contact Fr. Gregory to schedule a house blessing if the times listed do not work for you. If you cannot find a convenient time please contact Fr. Gregory - homes can be blessed through the 5th week of Great Lent if need be. If you live far from St. Vladimirs please consult with those other parishioners of St. Vladimirs who live near you so that you can all have your homes blessed on the same day. If you would like to have Fr. Colin bless your house please contact him at priestcolinbower@stvladimiraami.org. Congratulations to all with the feast of our Lords Baptism!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
19/1/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults on the upcoming Sunday's principle Gospel reading so that all can better prepare for the Divine Services. 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 All: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Emergency Cards Available 
18/1/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The diocese has provided each of our parishes with Emergency Cards. These cards are to be filled out and put in your wallet so that if it were ever to happen that you were in an accident or otherwise needed spiritual support, but could not speak for yourself, the authorities would find the card in your wallet and call Fr. Gregory to come to you. We hope none of our parishioners ever needs to use one of these cards, but it is a good idea to have one just in case. Please see Fr. Gregory if you have questions. Emergency cards can be found near the front doors - near the pamphlets that are available to all for free.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
16/1/22, 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: Hebrews 11:17-23, 27-31 & Mark 12:13-17
Tuesday: I Corinthians 9:19-27 & Luke 3:1-18
Wednesday: Titus 2:11-14, 3:4-7 & Matthew 3:13-17
Thursday: Acts 19:1-8 & John 1:29-34
Friday: James 2:1-13 & Mark 13:1-8
Saturday: Ephesians 6:10-17 & Matthew 4:1-11

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