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


Nowadays, we need to live according to Christian laws and not according to the laws of this world. There is no need to watch how the world lives; it is governed by somewhat different rules.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
19/1/20, 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: Hebrews 11:17-23, 27-31 & Mark 9:42-10:1
Tuesday: Hebrews 12:25-26,13:22-25 & Mark 10:2-12
Wednesday: James 1:1-18 & Mark 10:11-16
Thursday: James 1:19-27 & Mark 10:17-27
Friday: James 2:1-13 & Mark 10:23-32
Saturday: Colossians 1:3-6 & Luke 16:10-15

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

Morning Divine Services Canceled 1/18/20 
18/1/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The snow has materialized as forecast so we will cancel the Divine Services this morning. There is every expectation that the snow will end mid-morning, so there should be ample time to clean the roads in time for Vigil tonight for the great feast of the Lords Theophany. Please join us at 6:00 p.m. tonight for that service.

Tomorrow after the Divine Liturgy we will process to the Jordan and bless the waters according to the ancient practice of the Church. Divine Liturgy begins at 10:00 a.m. and we invite all to join us!

See you soon at St. Vladimirs!

Fr. Gregory
