Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
20/3/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

If you seek justice in anythingwhen your neighbor treats you unjustly, dishonors you, reviles you, hits you, persecutes you, or even plots against your lifeyou are unjust if you consider him to be the cause or passionately criticize him. For you are seeking from him something that God has not given him. If you understand fully what I am telling you, everyone will seem unaccountable for whatever his faults may be, and only you will be accountable for everything.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
19/3/23, 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 14:24-32, Genesis 8:21-9:7, Proverbs 11:19-12:6
Tuesday: Isaiah 25:1-9, Genesis 9:8-17, Proverbs 12:8-22
Wednesday: Isaiah 26:21-27:9, Genesis 9:18-10:1, Proverbs 12:21-13:9
Thursday: Isaiah 28:14-22, Genesis 10:32-11:9, Proverbs 13:20-14:6
Friday: Isaiah 29:13-23, Genesis 12:1-7, Proverbs 14:15-26
Saturday: Hebrews 6:9-12 & Mark 7:31-37

: 14:24-32, 8:21-9:7, 11:19-12:6
: 25:1-9, 9:8-17, 12:8-22
: 26:21-27:9, 9:18-10:1, 12:21-13:9
: 28:14-22, 10:32-11:9, 13:20-14:6
: 29:13-23, 12:1-7, 14:15-26
: . 6:9-12 & 7:31-37

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 
19/3/23, 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!

How to Support St. Vladimir's 
16/3/23, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

People often ask us how they can make donations to St. Vladimirs other than by making a donation at church. We work continuously to make this as easy for our parish family and friends as we can and we appreciate your feedback in this regard. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF YOUR PARISH!

During this time of economic difficulty we need your support more than ever! We understand that your bills are higher now than in the past. But so are the parish bills. AND we are being asked to help those who cannot pay their own bills because of the economic situation. Please establish a regular tithe in support of the parish which God has entrusted to us! You can do that, and investigate other means of supporting St. Vladimir's at this page:
