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. Vladimirs 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 Gods 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!

Posted by Fr. Gregory


Sorrows are a spiritual lesson by which a man learns his weakness and the power of God. The harder the sorrow, the deeper the lesson is. All we have to do is to endure these tribulations with patience and gratitude to God.

New Martyrs of the Russian Church this Sunday 
6/2/20, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

This Sunday marks the annual commemoration of the New Martyrs of the Russian Church. It is important that we understand that this feast encompasses all those who gave up their lives for Christ during the darkest years of the Soviet period - from Russia, to Ukraine, to the Baltic States, to Central Asia and beyond. The first priestly martyr of the Revolution was... St. John Kochurov from... Chicago! He had returned to St. Petersburg to visit family and was caught up in a mob that killed him for being a priest. This day also marks the name's day of our Archbishop Peter. His Eminence is named in honor of New Hieromartyr Peter of Krutitsa, who is commemorated on this day. Let us all gather in the parish church this Sunday to mark this important feast for us all. Tertulian wrote: "The blood of the martyrs waters the seed of the Church..." and we see that seed growing today in Russia, in America, and throughout the world. It is our Christian obligation to honor the martyrs. And certainly it is our obligation to pray for Archbishop Peter especially on this day as our first leader in this his diocese. May the Lord grant His Eminence many years, and may He grant us the zeal to always honor the sacrifice of the martyrs!

The more one collects earthly goods, the more desperate one becomes, because they do not bring spiritual joy. You can collect all the treasures of the earth and put them in front of you, and still be the most miserable person.
