St. Vladimirs Next Steps out of Quarantine Sign up to Attend Services! 
1/6/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


As of Monday, June 1, the Michigan Stay at Home Order has been lifted. It is now possible for up to 100 people to gather, maintaining 6-foot distance, outside. Thus, it is very likely that the late Divine Liturgy on Sundays will be held outside starting with Sunday, June 7. More information will soon be forthcoming. The early Sunday Divine Liturgy will remain closed to the public. Divine Services during the week will have some limit on the number that can attend, but it is not yet clear exactly what that number will be. Masks will continue to be required for the Divine Services inside the church. We are working out all the details with the Parish Council now and hope to share those details by mid-week at the latest. We appreciate your patience as we work out these new guidelines and how these apply to our parish.

For now, you can still sign up for the weekday Divine Services based on the previous regime and following our Quarantine Exit Plan (this can be found at the sign up link below). If the rules change you will not lose your place, so signing up now is a good idea:

SIGN UP FOR SERVICES WEEK OF 5/31/20

Let us be diligent in making sure that St. Vladimirs is a place that gives life not that causes death. We hope that our zeal in following the Quarantine Exit Plan will continue to help our state in our own small way to continue to exit the quarantine and never return!

Monday First Things: Teaching of the Holy Fathers 
1/6/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Conquer men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of justice to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
31/5/20, 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: Acts 21:8-14 & John 14:27-15:7
Tuesday: Acts 21:26-32 & John 16:2-13
Wednesday: Acts 23:1-11 & John 16:15-23
Thursday: Acts 25:13-19 & John 16:23-33
Friday: Acts 27:1-44 & John 17:18-26
Saturday: Acts 28:1-31 & John 21:15-25

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

Emergency Cards Available 
30/5/20, 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.
