Yikes Great Lent is Coming Soon! 
10/1/15, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Those who have had a chance to look at this year's annual calendar have no doubt noticed that Great Lent is coming soon! That is not a bad thing by any means, and it is good for us in a way to see those Lenten days coming and to prepare for them. A few things to note:

- the schedule for the first week will include three days of the full cycle of services beginning at 8:00 a.m.: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

- we will hold our Great Lenten Lecture Series again this year. We are working out details with our keynote speaker and once we have done that we will release the full schedule of lectures. As always there will be a lecture each of the Sundays of Great Lent.

- Vespers will be held on Sundays after the Great Lenten Lecture on March 1, 15, and 29. This is a very beautiful service that transitions us liturgically from the weekend back to the Great Lenten weekday paradigm, including the chanting of the Great Prokimenon. This will be the first year that we serve this service and we invite all to participate!

- we intend to serve Presanctified Liturgies on most Wednesday evenings and Friday mornings of the fast more details to come soon

Church School Resumes January 10 
9/1/15, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
St. Vladimirs Church School begins January 10. Classes will be held every Saturday afternoon at 5:00 p.m. through May 30 with the exception of April 11. 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 with questions in this regard.

To learn more about our Church School please contact the Church School Director, Lilia Vershynin: 734-276-7548 or info@stvladimiraami.org
