Posted by Fr. Gregory


Please find the schedule of services for the first week of Great Lent at the link below. PLEASE NOTE that we have added more services on Tuesday and Thursday this year. Please put the services that you plan to attend on your schedule now. THEN add one more. This is a special week. We should be in church as much as we are able. If we push ourselves just a little bit the Lord will strengthen us - and we will begin this special time of year well.

Please also note: everyone should prepare themselves to partake of the Holy Mysteries the first Saturday and/or Sunday of the Great Fast - more information on the schedule flyer below.

Please join us Friday at 6:00 p.m. and Saturday at 8:00 a.m. for the synaxis of the holy fathers and mothers who have shown forth in asceticism. If you cannot come to the Evening Services or Liturgy please try to join us on one of our live streams.

All are welcome! The services will be inside the church, so we ask that you sign up.

Forgiveness Vespers in the Pandemic 
11/3/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Forgiveness Sunday is this coming Sunday. There are lots of logistics to manage regarding Forgiveness Vespers itself, which is held immediately after the Divine Liturgy on this day. Here are the details – God willing this limited approach will only have to happen this one year!

1. Forgiveness Vespers will take place after each Divine Liturgy on Sunday, March 14, 2021

2. Generally we bow down, kiss, and embrace each other one at a time during the rite of Forgiveness. This year only we will prostrate ourselves in our own place in four directions led by the priest, each time saying “forgive me a sinner” and answering also “God forgives – forgive me a sinner”. You are welcome to prostrate to the ground if you like, but please note that the cement floor in the winter worship space is likely to leave you dirty, no matter how well we clean it, and likely also damage your clothes.

3. After these group prostrations the choir will sing “Let God arise...” according to the tradition of the Church. All will remain in their places. When this hymn is complete the Vespers service will come to an end.

We thank all for their attention to this modified approach to Forgiveness Vespers for this year. May the merciful Lord forgive us all as we forgive each other, and bless us to enter into the holy days of Great Lent striving together as a parish family not against each other, but against our sins, our weaknesses, and our falls. If we support each other in our Great Lenten struggle, we can have great hope that this year’s Pascha will be for us the most blessed we have ever experienced!

You Are a Missionary 
10/3/21, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The Lord has entrusted us with the Pearl of Great Price – the Orthodox Faith. Are we hiding this? Are we keeping it for ourselves? Or are we following the example of the Apostles and working actively to spread our saving faith? If you had the cure for a bodily disease like cancer you would never keep that to yourself – it is obvious that this would be unethical and sinful. But we have the cure for DEATH! And sadly – we mostly keep it to ourselves. And that is even more unethical and sinful that hiding the cure for any bodily disease. Share your faith. Invite a friend, loved one, or neighbor to the Divine Services this coming weekend – and assure them that you will be there to welcome them to St. Vladimir’s. If we would all do this – if we would make just a minimal effort to invite others – we would need to seriously rethink the size of the new church we plan to build because it would be way TOO SMALL. Let’s do that. Let’s make all our plans useless because there are just too many people in our parish family! Success only comes before work in the dictionary – let us get to work spreading our Orthodox Faith by simply inviting others to join us at St. Vladimir’s!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
10/3/21, 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 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 Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

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