14/4/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please plan to join us on Monday, April 19, 2021 for the annual Michigan Deanery General Unction service at St. Vladimirs. The service will be held outside (NEW), unless the weather is contrary, in which case it will be held in the Winter Worship Space with open doors and windows. Our usual pandemic guidelines will be followed, as at all other Divine Services in the Winter Worship Space. Details can be found at the flyer below, which would also be good to share with friends and loved ones:


Following the Unction service there will be a short presentation on our parish efforts at meeting the Lords Matthew 25 Challenge. We welcome support from all those of good will, and hope to spread these efforts to other deanery parishes. Please plan to join us!

Great Standing of St. Andrew is this Wednesday 
13/4/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please join us for the Standing of St. Andrew this Wednesday. We wont mince words this is a long service. One of the longest of the year. And it is a challenge and one we should embrace! At this service we read the entire penitential canon of St. Andrew of Crete, the entire life of St. Mary of Egypt, and the full Matins service in preparation for the Presanctified Liturgy on THURSDAY night. There is only one life of a saint that is mandated to be read in the Divine Services during the entire year. And this is the life of St. Mary of Egypt. This should tell us something it should tell us this is important and we should participate in this service as we are able. Ideally by attending the service, but if that is impossible, via the live stream. Please join us as your personal schedule allows!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
12/4/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Whoever enters on the true path of pleasing God, or who begins with the aid of grace to strive toward God on the path of Christs law, will inevitably be threatened by the danger of losing his way at the crossroads, of going astray and perishing, imagining himself saved. These crossroads are unavoidable because of the sinful inclinations and disorder of ones faculties which are capable of presenting things in a false light to deceive and destroy a man. To this is joined the flattery of Satan, who is reluctant to be separated from his victims and, when someone from his domain goes to the light of Christ, pursues him and sets every manner of net in order to catch him again and quite often he indeed catches him.

Lenten Recipes 
7/4/21, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We are often asked about Lenten recipes. One can't really make it through any fasting period on only peanut butter and jelly! We present here some recipes that you may find helpful. Remember: anything that is vegan fits the fast, and since vegan diets have become popular lately, you can search for these on the Internet. We can't comment on the quality of the recipes you'll find when you make such a search, but the recipes below are GOOD! Enjoy!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday!  
7/4/21, 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 childrens 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)
