Welcome to the Home Page of St. Vladimir Church! 

Today's Date According to the Church (Old) Calendar:





According to the Executive Order of Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Policy of the Diocese of Chicago & Mid-America, St. Vladimir's is temporarily closed to public worship due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although we are saddened by this situation, we also understand that in this war all of society – including our St. Vladimir’s family – must unite to defeat the virus enemy. All resources must be brought to bear if victory is to be obtained. For us that means isolating ourselves from each other so that we do not in any way endanger those in our community who are at high risk of death from the virus. Most of us are healthy. Most of us are strong. Most of us will be unaffected by the virus. But we have to do our part – we have to fight selfish self interest – and we have to follow the advice of the experts and be obedient to the decisions of our ruling bishop. We thank everyone for their understanding and for their efforts to get us to the point of victory over this invisible foe!

Please contact me or Fr. Moses at any time for any spiritual or material support you need during this time of quarantine. With God’s help and our sincere effort we can have great hope in overcoming our common societal enemy! Let it never be said that we did not do our part with sincerity and zeal! Let it never be said that we felt ourselves “special” and not in need of taking part in this war! As Orthodox Christians let us be exemplary members of the society in which the merciful Lord has placed us! Let us serve others with valor and Christian Love, whether that service is (for most of us) just staying home and staying safe, or hands-on service of those in need, or other action that we may be called to in service to the eventual victory! All Divine Services will be broadcast on our Live Streams – please join us and worship with us just as you would when we gather in the Church, but from your own “desert” that the Lord has provided us during this time of Great Lent. We are pilgrims in this life dear brothers and sisters – the pandemic has just reminded us a bit of this reality. Glory to God for this and for all things!

Regular Services:
Saturday Vigil: 6:00 p.m.
Sunday Divine Liturgy: 10:00 a.m.

Please find the quarterly communication at the link below. Please note that we will have a question and answer period and report out during the parish meal on Sunday, January 26, 2020 to allow for questions in an open forum. However, please feel free to contact any of us, or any of the Parish Council members, with questions at any time.

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 Lord’s 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. Vladimir’s!

Fr. Gregory

We have had some GREAT traditional dancing by our young people and our adults at our festival over the last few years, and there has been a desire to continue this pleasant work outside of festival time. And so we will with God’s help! Rehearsals begin on Monday 1/20/20 at 6:00 p.m. at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 3109 Scio Church Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. We thank our Greek Orthodox friends for their kindness in allowing us to use their hall for our rehearsals! The program includes: ethnic Slavic dancing, floor gymnastics and stretching. Two groups will be created: one for children, the second one for adults. Classes will be priced to make it possible for everyone to participate. Rehearsals will be Mondays from 6:00-7:00 p.m. for youth, and from 7:00-8:00 p.m. for adults. Learn more by reaching out to Inna Duerr: 734-477-6833.

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 can’t 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.
