Youth Choir, Bell Ringers, and Altar Servers Practice Every Saturday at 3:30 p.m. 
20/9/14, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
This year as part of our Church School curriculum we strongly urge all parents and their children to stay with us for the evening services which begin right after Church School every Saturday. We participate in the Divine Services – we are not spectators. Those young people who participate in the evening services tend to persist in their faith more consistently as they age than that those who do not participate in these services. To help facilitate the participation of our young people in the services we offer three options. For girls: participating in our Youth Choir or ringing bells. For boys: participating in our Youth Choir, ringing bells, or serving in the altar. The Youth Choir, Bell Ringers, and Altar Servers hold practices each Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. WE WOULD LIKE TO BEGIN WORKING WITH THOSE WHO WILL SING IN THE YOUTH CHOIR ASAP! Please contact Fr. Gregory (ogrisha@stvladimiraami.org) or Liza Kiseleva (info@stvladimiraami.org) to volunteer to participate in the Youth Choir. We will begin rehearsals on Saturday, September 6. The Youth Choir will sing selections of the Divine Services in both English and Church Slavonic. Those who cannot read Church Slavonic/Russian will be taught to do this so that they can fully participate in the choir.

To learn more about and to participate in bell ringing, please contact John Hill (headbrother@stvladimiraami.org). Rehearsals begin September 27 for this group.

To learn more about and to participate in serving in the altar please contact Fr. Gregory (ogrisha@stvladimiraami.org) or Subdeacon John Zroika (info@stvladimiraami.org). Practices begin September 27 for this group. Those who already serve in the altar will learn MORE, while those who do not yet serve in the altar will learn how to do so appropriately.

Church School Begins this Saturday! 
19/9/14, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Church School begins this year on September 20. Classes will be held on Saturdays beginning at 4:45 p.m. We have experimented with various days and times for Church School and we feel that Saturday afternoon is the best for the kids and the teachers and thus we have moved to Saturdays again this year. Please contact the head of our Church School, Lilia Vershynin, or Fr. Gregory with questions. We have lots of new activities and interesting lessons for this year including a reinvigorated Youth Choir and two pilgrimages to monasteries! Please register you child as soon as possible so we can prepare the appropriate amount of materials. After the Divine Services the Church School is the most important ministry in our parish. We ask the prayers of all our parish family and friends for our success. We are looking forward to a great Church School year – please join us!

English Liturgies and Work Days this Fall – FIRST OF THE FALL IS THIS SATURDAY 
18/9/14, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Each month we serve one daily cycle of Divine Services in English on a Friday evening and Saturday morning. Following Liturgy – the end of that cycle of services – we hold our monthly parish work day/clean up. We find that caring for the candle stands, dusting the iconostasis, cleaning the icons hung on the walls, polishing the benches, and other sort of jobs that are not taken care of by those who clean the church weekly are best taken care of on a regular basis – not waiting until they become a major job due to neglect. Please plan to join us for English Divine Services on the following dates and for the clean up/work day on the Saturdays listed below following the Divine Liturgy. English Divine Services are scheduled for:

Friday, September: 19 6:00 p.m. & Saturday, September 20: 8:00 a.m.
Friday, October: 24 6:00 p.m. & Saturday, October 25: 8:00 a.m.
Friday, November 7: 6:00 p.m. & Saturday, November 8: 8:00 a.m.
Friday, December 5: 6:00 p.m. & Saturday, December 6: 8:00 a.m.

Posted by Fr. Gregory
Our teen youth group will meet for the first time this Sunday at Fr. Gregory's home in Saline from 5:00-7:00 p.m. We will be having pizza, so do RSVP! We'd hate to get too much or too little. Spread the word! Invite friends! This will be a “stump the priest” session, so please bring your best questions about faith! As always, the best question gets a prize! In addition to our discussion and our pizza we will likely have time to play some board games, a venerable tradition with this group. See you Sunday!

Weekly Educational Offering 
17/9/14, 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 children’s 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: a short account of Sunday's sermon by Blessed Theophylact:


For Children – an activity based on last Sunday's gospel reading for various ages:
