New Years Resolution + Harass Fr. Gregory 
14/1/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


New Years resolutions are not bad, but they are only good in as much as we actually follow them. Sometimes we make silly resolutions that we know we will not follow. I dont want us to do that as a parish family. Rather I think we need to make a resolution that we learn the hymns that Archbishop Peter has asked us to sing together as a parish during the Divine Services. We sing these in English sometimes and in Church Slavonic sometimes. If we want to sing this well, and strong, and triumphantly we need to practice. Success only comes before work in the dictionary! How to practice you ask? Visit this page all the links are there in English, Church Slavonic, and phonetic Church Slavonic (in Latin letters):

THINGS WE SING TOGETHER AT ST. VLADIMIR'S

Please make a habit of practicing these in both languages. AT A MINIMUM we should memorize these hymns in English or Church Slavonic. And we should sing these TRIUMPHANTLY - not as if we are singing in our sleep!

I am seeking a volunteer to harass me yes harass me! About what? The prayer after the meal. We have not been good about doing that. And when I say we I mean me. So I need some help? Would you like to have the obedience to harass me mercilessly? Please let me know I need some help with this! Fr. Gregory

Teen Photographers Needed! 
14/1/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


We are in need of three regular photographers for our Saturday evening/Sunday morning services. WE WILL TRAIN YOU. We have to train you in fact there are times when we can takes photos and times when we cant and we will explain that all to you. We have four teen gentlemen who are providing live video of the Divine Services so we would like to concentrate on young ladies for this task. But young gentlemen are welcome to join our photography cadre too. We are seeking those who do NOT serve in the altar or sing in the choir already. That is, those who are not involved/engaged in some sort of ministry in the parish presently. Those who volunteer will be assigned two weekend cycles of Divine Services per month (Saturday evening/Sunday morning), plus occasional feast day services like Nativity. Contact Fr. Gregory to learn more.

Everyone should own a prayer book. We strongly recommend the Jordanville edition, and we have this in our parish kiosk in English and Russian. However, sometimes we don't have a prayer book handy, or sometimes we need practical tools in our "prayer kit".

Monday First Things: Teaching of the Holy Fathers 
13/1/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Thoughts filled with love, mercy, patience, and respect attract Gods grace, and those that harbor anger, hatred, and pride drive it away. If we are overcome by anger, hatred, and pride, it indicates that Gods image within us is damaged.

Metroplitan Onuphry of Kiev & All Ukraine

Fr. Gregory: That image can be repaired by the medicine found in the Spiritual Hospital, the Orthodox Church.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
12/1/20, 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 1:1-12 & Luke 2:1-20
Tuesday: Galatians 4:4-7 & Matthew 2:1-12
Wednesday: Hebrews 2:11-18 & Matthew 2:13-23
Thursday: Acts 6:8-15,7:1-5,7:47-60 & Matthew 21:33-42
Friday: Hebrews 11:8,11-16 & Mark 12:1-12
Saturday: I Timothy 3:11-18 & Matthew 12:15-21

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