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!

New Years Resolution + Harass Fr. Gregory 
18/2/20, 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

Two Chalices What to do? 
11/2/20, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank God, we have the opportunity almost every Sunday to commune from two chalices. But we dont really commune from two chalices we commune from only one. And the EXACT SAME COMMUNION is in every chalice. Both of our chalices, and every chalice in the entire Orthodox Church. Since the Communion is the same we should go to the chalice that is most convenient for all of our brothers and sisters. In other words, we should go to the chalice that has the fewest people in line. At the beginning of Communion it is hard to tell which is the shorter line, but usually after a little time the line in the middle is longer. Some of those who are in that line should, with proper decorum, move to the other line. Or if the line on the side is longer, some folks should move to the middle. It doesnt matter which priest is communing the people at which place the Communion is exactly the same. Please be kind and gracious to our fellow believers and go to the shortest line, to the greatest extent possible. If you have questions please see Fr. Gregory or Fr. Moses.
