Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
5/3/23, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Isaiah 4:2-6;5:1-17, Genesis 3:21-4:7, Proverbs 3:34-4:22
Tuesday: Isaiah 5:7-16, Genesis 4:8-15, Proverbs 5:1-15
Wednesday: Isaiah 5:16-25, Genesis 4:16-26, Proverbs 5:15-6:3
Thursday: Isaiah 6:1-12, Genesis 5:1-24, Proverbs 6:3-20
Friday: Isaiah 7:1-14, Genesis 5:32-6:8, Proverbs 6:20-7:1
Saturday: Hebrews 3:12-16 & Mark 1:35-44

: 4:2-6;5:1-17, 3:21-4:7, 3:34-4:22
: 5:7-16, 4:8-15, 5:1-15
: 5:16-25, 4:16-26, 5:15-6:3
: 6:1-12, 5:1-24, 6:3-20
: 7:1-14, 5:32-6:8, 6:20-7:1
: . 3:12-16 & 1:35-44

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirs + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
5/3/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Confession and Communion are the two sacraments we most often partake of as Orthodox Christians and thus it behooves us to learn about these, how to prepare for these, and how to best take advantage of the Grace that our Lord freely gives us in these sacraments. At St. Vladimirs we have created a special web site for this purpose with much information in this regard. Please find the web site listed below and please contact Fr. Gregory with questions!

Winter Weather & Divine Services 
3/3/23, 04:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Friends,

The weather outside is a little frightful, so please use your best judgment on coming to church tonight. We will follow our inclement weather policy, which well provide below. A decision about tomorrows Liturgy will be made later. Please keep a close eye on your email/our web site/Facebook.

Fr. Gregory

===

In case of inclement weather St. Vladimirs parishioners are urged to use caution and their best judgment when deciding whether to travel to the parish church for Divine Services. If the priest is able to reach the church the Divine Services will be conducted, but if parishioners perceive the driving conditions to be dangerous they should not feel compelled to travel to church.

General Confession & Communion of the Parish is this Weekend 
2/3/23, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As is our tradition at St. Vladimirs (a pious tradition found throughout the Russian Orthodox Church) we urge all our family and friends to attend as many of the services as possible during the first week of Great Lent (beginning with the very important Forgiveness Sunday Vespers), with the goal of confessing and partaking of the Holy Mysteries on either Saturday, March 4 (Theodore Saturday) or Sunday, March 5 (The Sunday of Orthodoxy). Let us begin our Great Lenten journey of repentance and preparation for the feast of feasts, our Lords Glorious Resurrection, by forgiving each other and partaking of the Cup of Life together as a parish family!
