40 Consecutive Liturgy Commemoration Now Available 
25/1/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Many people ask us for 40-day commemorations at the Divine Liturgy. This practice remembering someone who is ill or who has died for 40 consecutive days at the Divine Liturgy is known as Sorokoust. We do not serve Liturgy every day at St. Vladimir's. But we did serve 122 Liturgies last year. Thank God we have the opportunity to serve Liturgy often. We provide a sort of modified Sorokoust for our parish family. We can commemorate your friends or loved ones at 40 consecutive Liturgies. This will take more than 40 days, but nonetheless it will indeed be helpful for those who are commemorated. Please arrange these special commemorations with Fr. Gregory or with Albina Seraphimovna at the parish kiosk. There is no cost for these commemorations, but it is common to give a donation in thanksgiving for the prayers. The amount is completely up to those arranging the Sorokoust and, as with other special services at St. Vladimir's, should be based on your financial situation. If God has blessed you with much you should give much. If He has blessed you with little, you should give little. Please see Fr. Gregory with questions about this or any other spiritual issue.

22/1/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Most of us attend Liturgy regularly on Sundays, but rarely other days. Still, it is good to know when we make prostrations on weekdays, and this is why we have put together this handout. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions. See the handout in PDF format here:

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
22/1/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

By the death of martyrs religion has been defended, faith increased, the Church strengthened; the dead have conquered, the persecutors have been overcome. And so we celebrate the death of those of whose lives we are ignorant. So, too, David rejoiced in prophecy at the departure of his own soul, saying: Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. He esteemed death better than life. The death itself of the martyrs is the prize of their life. And again, by the death of those at variance hatred is put an end to.

Lampadas above the Royal Doors - Please be Attentive 
20/1/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We ask all to be attentive to the system we have devised to help folks know when they can and when they cannot move about during the Divine Services to light candles, etc. Even as we ask all to be attentive we also ask all to be loving, and if someone clearly is not aware that we have reached a time in the Divine Service when we should be still that we share that information with them lovingly and in a way that will not cause embarrassment. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns. See flyer here - printable version (legal size):

Ball & Yolka Thank You! 
16/1/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to all who made our Nativity Ball and our Yolka so wonderful this last weekend! The ball raised close to $2,000 for the Davydovo Camp for Special Needs Children (we can present this to Fr. Vladimir Klimzo in person he will visit us later this month!) and it was a ton of fun! And the Yolka was simply amazing the kids had such a good time (and the adults did too if we are all honest about this), and Father Frost and Snegurichka made their annual appearance including gifts for all the children! Thank you to all who made all this possible! This is a lot of work a LOT of work. And I think many of us who do not have the opportunity to participate in planning such events dont really understand the hours and hours of preparation that go into these things. BUT DO NOT DESPAIR we have a great opportunity for you! We are looking for helpers for next years Nativity Ball and now is your chance to volunteer! Please email info@stvladimiraami.org if you are interested or to learn more. Email today. Right now. This instant. Do not wait!

Thank you again to all who work so hard to support our Divine Services, extracurricular activities, and everything we do at St. Vladimirs!
