Posted by Fr. Gregory

Brotherhood, Sisterhood, Clergy, Choir – EVERYONE! We all need to chip in an take care of the property the Lord has given to us, just as we all need to work together to execute our beautiful Divine Services. Please mark your calendars now for every second Saturday of the month for an all-parish work day. Every season. Every month. Inside. Outside. Always every second Saturday starting at 10:00 a.m. please plan to join us to pitch in as we make our parish shine as the House of God that it is! Invite friends! Everyone is welcome! And it just isn’t fair to expect that “someone else” will do this. We all own our parish in that the Lord has given us to be here. And we all share the responsibility that He has given us to care for His House.

House Blessing Time – Make Your Appointment Now! 
9/2/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Each year following the feast of the Theophany (the Lord’s Baptism – January 19) it is a traditional and pious custom to have one’s home blessed by the priest. Homes are blessed at St. Vladimir’s until the beginning of Great Lent as a rule. Please visit this link to make an appointment:


Please contact Fr. Gregory or Fr. Colin to schedule a house blessing if the times listed do not work for you. Homes can be blessed through the 5th week of Great Lent if need be. If you live far from St. Vladimir’s please consult with those other parishioners of St. Vladimir’s who live near you so that you can all have your homes blessed on the same day. Congratulations to all with the feast of our Lord’s Baptism!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
8/2/23, 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 Various Ages: from the Antiochian Archdiocese

Liturgy Canceled 2/7/23 
6/2/23, 10:30 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


It pains me greatly to have to cancel Liturgy for my own name’s day, but unfortunately I have to do that. I went to the doctor today for ear pain and was confirmed with my first ear infection since childhood. I had hoped that I would feel well enough, having started antibiotics, to serve. But I am still feeling quite ill, and there are people coming from quite a distance tomorrow for Liturgy. I don’t want those visitors to drive a long way to come to a locked church. So I need to decide tonight, and unfortunately I have to choose to cancel. :(

I ask your forgiveness and your prayers! We still hope to see all of you at our house on Thursday evening at 6 pm to celebrate my name’s day together as a parish family!

In Christ,

Fr. Gregory

Therefore, be brave and strong in the Lord, and don’t let your eagerness flag. Rather, keep seeking and crying out constantly, regardless of whether you receive anything or not.
