Weekly Educational Offering 
12/4/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults. Parents are asked to review the childrenТs 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: an explanation of the Sunday's gospel reading by Blessed Theophylact:

Confess Early Ц but not Often Ц for Pascha 
11/4/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Those who confess beginning on Friday, April 7 and any time during Holy Week may partake of Divine Communion during any of the Holy Week & Bright Week Divine Liturgies if they have read their pre-Communion rule. Please plan to come to Confession early in the week so that your Confession will not be rushed due to long lines of others waiting for Confession. ONCE YOU HAVE CONFESSED YOU SHOULD NOT CONFESS AGAIN UNLESS YOU FALL INTO A VERY SERIOUS SIN. There are MANY who need to confess this week - literally hundreds. Please be merciful to your priests and only confess one time unless there is a very serious need to confess a second time.

Holy Week & Bright Week Schedule  
10/4/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The schedule of services for Holy Week and Bright Week at St. Vladimir's is now available at the link below. We will have Divine Services each evening and morning of Holy Week and many days of Bright Week. Please make your plans now to attend these beautiful and meaningful services, which happen only once per year. This is one of these things we have to do ahead of time. If we just wait to see if we have time we won't - we have to MAKE time to be with the Lord during this time.

PLEASE NOTE: There are two services that traditionally have not been as well attended as they really should be and we would like to make a real effort this year to do better in that regard. Those services are:

1. Matins for Holy Friday (12 Passion Gospels): Thursday, April 13 at 6:00 p.m. The choir works SO HARD to prepare for this service, and the hymnography is SO BEAUTIFUL. DO NOT MISS this service!

2. Paschal Vespers and Matins on the day of Pascha itself: Sunday, April 16 at 2:00 p.m. Celebrate Pascha again by attending this service. The hymnography of Pascha is so beautiful and meaningful - how can just standing and participating all night be enough? That is rhetorical - it CANNOT be enough! :) Join us on Pascha afternoon for more and prepare for Bright Monday Divine Liturgy by participating in Paschal Vespers & Matins on Pascha itself!

Scripture Readings for the Coming Week 
9/4/17, 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 Ц 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: Matthew 21:18-43, Ezekiel 1:1-20, Exodus 1:1-20, Job 1:1-12, Matthew 24:3-35
Tuesday: Matthew 22:15-23:39, Ezekiel 1:21-2:1, Exodus 2:5-10, Job 1:13-22, Matthew 24:36-26:2
Wednesday: John 12:17-50, Ezekiel 2:3-3:3, Exodus 2:11-22, Job 2:1-10, Matthew 26:6-16
Thursday: Luke 22-1-39, Matthew 26:1-20, John 13:3-17, Matthew 26:21-39, Luke 22:43-45, Matthew 26:40-27:2
Friday: Please attend the Divine Services Ц the list of readings is too long to publish here
Saturday: Romans 6:3-11 & Matthew 28:1-20

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

By St. Justin (Popovich):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/bible_how.aspx

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/ware_howto.aspx

This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:

http://www.chrysostompress.org/reading_scripture.html

As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:
