Two Liturgies Every Sunday 
17/2/21, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


We have two Divine Liturgies every Sunday morning! The first is at 8:00 a.m. in the church and it is necessary to sign up for this. We will STRICTLY enforce the sign up if you do not sign up you will not be allowed to enter. This is because there are people who are attending who are avoiding the larger Divine Service gatherings in the parish due to Covid concerns. Parish Council members will be on hand to enforce these guidelines. If you are not assigned to sing we ask that you not do so. The sign up sheet can be found here and will be open until 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 20 no registrations will be allowed after that time:

SIGN UP FOR SUNDAY 8:00 A.M. LITURGY

As always, you will need to sanitize your hands before entering the church. Masks are required. Social distancing is required (spaces are clearly marked). The second Divine Liturgy is at 10:00 a.m. in the winter worship space as usual. No sign up is required, but hand sanitizing, masking, and social distancing are required.

Please join us as your personal schedule allows, and PLEASE DRESS WARMLY for Divine Services in the winter worship space!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
17/2/21, 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 childrens 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 Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

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

Construction continues!

Construction on our parish day school, the Ann Arbor Orthodox Christian Academy, continues this week. The walls are up! The roof is up! The Lord has blessed us to get this far, and we are thankful for all your support! But now it is time to strengthen our foundation of support. You cant build a building without a strong foundation. That is true physically (we are using cement for the school, so that part is done), and that is true financially. As of 2/15/21 we have $935 in monthly recurring donations supporting the school. This is great! This is the beginning of a good foundation thank God! Our monthly mortgage payment on the school will be about $1500 and we need to get our recurring donations to this point ASAP. Thats 57 more people at $10 per month. If every adult member of our parish (about 150 folks) can donate $10 per month we are more than done! This is a parish-wide project lets all join in and make it happen as a parish family! The school is the jumping off point to the new church help us build this step to get quickly to the next!

IF YOU ARE NOT IN A POSITION TO MAKE A DONATION PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING YOUR TIME OR TALENT AS A VOLUNTEER BY SENDING AN EMAIL: info@stvladimiraami.org

Every member of our Board of Directors has established a monthly recurring donation, as have many of our parishioners and some folks from outside the parish. JOIN US! $10/month. $120/year. Just about $2/week. Visit this link to establish your monthly donation and assure that Orthodox education in Michigan has a firm foundation:

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
8/2/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


When going to the Holy Mysteries, go with simplicity of heart, in full faith that you will receive the Lord within yourself, and with the proper reverence towards this. What your state of mind should be after this, leave it to the Lord Himself. Many desire ahead of time to receive this or that from Holy Communion, and then, not seeing what they wanted, they are troubled, and even their faith in the power of the Mystery is shaken. The fault lies not with the Mystery, but with superficial assumptions. Do not promise yourself anything. Leave everything to the Lord, asking a single mercy from Him to strengthen you in every kind of good so that you will be acceptable to Him. The fruit of Communion most often has a taste of sweet peace in the heart; sometimes it brings enlightenment to thought and inspiration to ones devotion to the Lord; sometimes almost nothing is apparent, but afterward in ones affairs there is a noted a great strength and steadfastness in the diligence one has promised.
