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.

On Sunday, February 2, 2020 the Superbowl will be played. On that day billions of dollars will be spent in America on snacks and drinks. International Orthodox Christian Charities is asking all of us Orthodox Christians in America – millions of us – to set aside a few dollars and bring some non-perishable food to church this Sunday. And we are asking that of our parish family too. We will have a special collection at the cross on Sunday and ask folks to bring non-perishable foods. Which foods? Check out this list:

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
29/1/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults on the upcoming Sunday's principle Gospel reading so that all can better prepare for the Divine Services. Parents are asked to review the children’s portion with their children. It is very important for us to attend the Divine Services on Sundays and whenever else we are able, but in addition it is our spiritual responsibility to educate ourselves and our families in the faith. It is our hope that this mid-week offering will be an aid in this regard. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or suggestions.

For All: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please join us this Wednesday, January 29 immediately following the akathist to the Mother of God for a presentation by our friend, Fr. Vladimir Klimzo, who is visiting us for a few weeks here in Ann Arbor with Archbishop Peter's blessing, on the topic: “Spiritual Life in Russia Today”. Fr. Vladimir’s presentation will be in both English and Russian – his English is quite good. Of course, if you want to ask Fr. Vladimir about his work with special needs children and adults it is unlikely he will refuse to answer you. :) Please join us for what looks to be a lovely evening this Wednesday!
