Communing the Sick, Blessing Homes, Spiritual Support - Please Reach Out! 
16/2/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Fr. Gregory is available to bring Holy Communion to the sick, bless homes and apartments (or dorm rooms), or to provide spiritual support to any and all of our parish family whenever there is a need. Please do not hesitate to contact him! Too often those in need suffer in silence because they do not want to bother the priest. Fr. Gregory is here to serve our parish family just as Christ came to minister so too is this the calling of the parish priest. You can reach Fr. Gregory by phone or SMS at 734-649-5746 or via email at ogrisha@stvladimiraami.org. Rest assured he looks forward to hearing from you any time whether you have a specific need or even if you just need to talk please contact him!

Silence in Church Please 
15/2/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It is important that we make an effort a real effort to refrain from speaking in church. We have gotten a bit lax about this lately and the timing is not good. Archbishop Peter will be visiting soon and he will most certainly correct this inappropriate behavior if we do not correct it ourselves. And we will like it a lot less if he feels the need to do this than if we learn to do this on our own. If one absolutely must have a conversation during the time of the Divine Services this should be done either:

1. In the kiosk area IN VERY HUSHED TONES. The glass doors are by no means sound proof. We are failing quite terribly here. The Parish Council will discuss this at the next meeting and measures will be taken to cut down on the cacophony coming from behind the glass doors during the Divine Liturgy.

2. Outside

3. Most appropriately, unless the conversation involves a life or death situation: at the meal after the Divine Liturgy

4. We ask parents that if they bring toys for their children that these be soft toys that to do not make noise when dropped on the floor or on the benches.

Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
11/2/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

According to thy mercy, pour out upon me, who am miserable, at least one small drop of grace to make me understand and be converted, that I might make at least some small effort to correct myself. For if thy grace does not illumine my soul, I will not be able to see the carelessness and negligence that the passions have produced in me through my apathy and recklessness.

Proper Attire in Church 
9/2/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As the weather cools it is always a temptation to come to church dressed not quite appropriately. We provide the information below as a guide to help make good decisions about what to wear to church:

http://stvladimiraami.org/flyers/properattire.pdf

PARENTS: it is YOUR responsibility to assure that your child is dressed appropriately.

TWO ISSUES WE STRUGGLE WITH EVERY YEAR: no shorts and no uncovered shoulders - no matter the age.

ANOTHER ISSUE WE STRUGGLE WITH: we have skirts and shawls to share if needed. But these are not items to be used as weapons in the attack of a visitor, but to be offered lovingly if it is clear that someone feels out of place because they innocently came to church dressed inappropriately.

Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns.

No Cell Phones in Church Please 
8/2/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please be courteous to your fellow worshipers and be sure to turn off your cell phone when entering the church, or at the very least turn the ringer to the vibrate function. When traveling in Russia Fr. Gregory saw this sign: "Those cell phones that ring in church will be submerged in Holy Water!". We will not go that far, but we hope this helps you remember how important it is to turn off your phone...

Thank you for you attention to this important matter!

Dear Friends,

Due to unsafe road conditions we will unfortunately have to cancel Liturgy this morning. Thank God we had the opportunity to serve Vigil for St. Xenia last night! Please spread the word to those who you know or suspect were planning to attend Liturgy this morning. Congratulations to those celebrating their names days today, including our Head Sister Ksenia Nikulshina, all our Ksenias, and our entire St. Xenia Sisterhood!

Those who prepared to partake of Holy Communion this morning may partake at one of the other Liturgies schedueld for this week.

In Christ,

Fr. Gregory
