Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
28/9/22, 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.

Church School begins this Saturday! 
27/9/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

St. Vladimirs Church School begins September 24! Classes will be held every Saturday afternoon at 5:00 p.m. through December 17 with the exception of November 24. We have condensed the classes to the greatest extent possible for the convenience of our busy families we value your time. Please do us the favor of valuing the time of the teachers and other volunteers who make our Church School possible by being on time.

All children are urged to participate in the Vigil following Church School and in the Sunday (and other feast day) Divine Liturgies to the greatest extent possible by ringing bells, serving in the altar, singing, helping in the kiosk, and most importantly by being present in the church and praying with their parish family, AND ESPECIALLY by partaking of the Holy Mysteries. The Liturgy is not a spectacle or event that we watch, but a prayerful work of the people that we participate in through our prayerful involvement. Please contact Fr. Gregory or Fr. Colin with questions in this regard.

To learn more about our Church School please contact the Church School Coordinator, Alexandra Pyrozhenko at info@stvladimiraami.org or visit our Church School Page.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
26/9/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

To bear the cross does not mean only visible, external sorrows, but also internal spiritual ones. One must endure darkness, faintheartedness and similar things as well. For God sends this for the destruction of our pride and acquiring of humility.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
25/9/22, 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: Galatians 4:28-5:10 & Mark 6:54-7:8
Tuesday: Galatians 5:11-21 & Mark 7:5-16
Wednesday: Galatians 6:2-10 & Mark 7:14-24
Thursday: Ephesians 1:1-9 & Mark 7:24-30
Friday: Ephesians 1:7-17 & Mark 8:1-10
Saturday: I Corinthians 10:23-28 & Matthew 24:34-44

: . 4:28-5:10 6:54-7:8
: . 5:11-21 7:5-16
: . 6:2-10 7:14-24
: . 1:1-9 7:24-30
: . 1:7-17 8:1-10
: I . 10:23-28 24:34-44

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