The molebens originally scheduled for Tuesday, January 27 and Friday, January 30 have been canceled. These were to have been served by Fr. Joseph, but he has already had to go to Arkansas to cover for one of the priests there who is having surgery today. Fr. Gregory also is out of town on a planned absence. We ask your forgiveness for the schedule change. We will hold our usual weekly akathist for the ill on Wednesday, January 28 as scheduled.

September Pilgrimage - are you interested? Deadline looming... 
26/1/15, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
We are planning a pilgrimage to the northern-most parish in our Michigan Deanery: the Sts. Sergius and Herman of Valaam parish in Houghton, MI. This pilgrimage is set for September 23-25, 2015. Yes that is many months from now. BUT we need to organize the pilgrimage NOW! How can you help? We need to hear from you by March 1, 2015 about whether you are theoretically interested in participating in this mid-week pilgrimage. That does not mean you are promising to participate! But we need to understand the order of magnitude. Will there be 10 people or 100 or something in between? That is important because the number of potential participants will help us understand whether we are renting a bus or some vans and how many hotel rooms we need to reserve. AT THAT POINT we will have a good idea how much the pilgrimage will cost.

BOTTOM LINE: please let us know by 3/1/15 whether you are interested in the pilgrimage by emailing info@stvladimiraami.org!

Posted by Fr. Gregory
Thank you to all who made the visit of Mother Macrina to our Church School on Saturday, January 17 such a great success! Mother Macrina was able to join us on Saturday afternoon to discuss monasticism with our children and parents and it was really a wonderful discussion! The presentation was interesting and the questions from the children and parents afterwards added greatly to the value of Mother Macrina's visit. If you haven't yet registered you child for Church School please do so! After the Divine Services this is the most important ministry of our parish to raise and strengthen our children in their faith. Registration information can be found at this link please join us!

Teen Youth Group Meets Sunday - Wii Tournament! 
24/1/15, 10:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Of course we will discuss spiritual things as we always do, but this time instead of board games we will play the Wii. Topic of the discussion is: Being/Choosing a Godparent Rights and Responsibilities. This group will soon be old enough to be asked to be Godparents, and although somewhat in the future they will have to choose Godparents. This is not a small thing - in fact it is a really BIG thing. Please join us! RSVP to Fr. Gregory so we'll know the right amount of snacks to have ready!

Forecast for Sunday 
23/1/15, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
The forecast for Sunday is for some snow: 1-3 inches. This long from now there is no telling what the weather will be since things could change between now and then. That being said, this is a good opportunity to share our Inclement Weather Policy, which is found below. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions.

===

Inclement Weather Policy
Approved by St. Vladimir Church Parish Council February 21, 2005

In case of inclement weather St. Vladimirs parishioners are urged to use caution and their best judgment when deciding whether to travel to the parish church for Divine Services. If the priest is able to reach the church the Divine Services will be conducted, but if parishioners perceive the driving conditions to be dangerous they should not feel compelled to travel to church.

Souper Bowl is February 1 
23/1/15, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) will hold its 17th annual Souper Bowl of Caring on Sunday, February 1. On that day we are asking all our of St. Vladimir's family to bring non-perishable food items to the Divine Liturgy. At the end of the Liturgy our young people will collect all the food donations and we will in turn provide these to Food Gatherers of Ann Arbor, an excellent agency which helps many in need. Don't miss the fun! Be part of the Souper Bowl and help those in need on this day when billions of dollars are spent on Super Bowl parties alone. If we can spend that much as a society on entertainment can we not spend at least as much on those in need? Let's do our part at St. Vladimir's!

More information on IOCC here:

http://www.iocc.org/

More information on Food Gatherers here:

For information on IOCC associated activities in our parish and to learn how you can help, please see our IOCC liaison, Maria Edwards.

First Week of Great Lent Schedule Available - Great Lent Begins February 23 
22/1/15, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please find the schedule of services for the first week of Great Lent at St. Vladimir's at the link below:

http://stvladimiraami.org/flyers/firstw ... tflyer.pdf

Please join us for as many of these services as your schedule allows! It is important to get a good start to Great Lent so that we utilize the precious few days of this special time of year to the greatest extent possible for our spiritual good. This is why we have many services the first week - to allow such a good start for all our parish family!

PLEASE NOTE: The unique liturgical character of Great Lent is found in the non-Sunday services of this time of year. Thus, all are urged, to the greatest extent possible, to attend the weekday services in addition to the Sunday services. It is understood that not every parishioner can attend every service. But we do hope that many parishioners make a special effort to attend as many of the weekday services as they can.

Please contact Fr. Gregory or Fr. Michael with questions about this or other spiritual matters.

Orthodox Summer Camps Plan NOW to Attend this Summer! 
21/1/15, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Now is the time to plan to send your children to an Orthodox Summer camp! We remind you NOW, so that as you plan your child's summer, you will be sure to include this important aspect of forming an Orthodox consciousness in your child's life. Last year we had a nice turnout of young people from our parish participate in both the Valdimirovo and Ruskoka camps. And honestly these are really the two best camps out there Fr. Gregory recommends them both highly! Vladimirovo is the our diocesan camp. Ruskoka is the Canadian diocese's camp. You can learn more about these camps at the links below. PARENTS: please take some time NOW and review this information! Once registration opens these camps will fill up quickly and you don't want to miss your change to register your child.

Vladimirovo:

Ruskoka:

There are three other Orthodox camps that you may want to consider and which may be more convenient for your family: St. Seraphim's Camp, NORR, and ORUR. These are the other three camps associated with the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad in the eastern half of North America. More information below:
