Children's Pascha 2 is this Sunday! 
16/5/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We cannot contain it to just one Sunday! Pascha is celebrated every day from the feast itself until the Ascension of the Lord 40 days later. Just as we celebrate Pascha every day we cant fit the childrens Pascha celebration into just one Sunday so well do it for two this year!

Please join us on for the Paschal Egg Hunt both weeks and our two different Church School Paschal plays. Come for Liturgy and stay for all the fun! Mark your calendars now!

New Choir Director at St. Vladimirs 
15/5/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Friends,

Christ is Risen!

I am very pleased to announce that with the blessing of Archbishop Peter and with my full support Julia Easson has agreed to assume the role of Choir Director at St. Vladimirs upon Roman Vershynins completion of his tenure here. I am most certainly sad to see Roman go, but at the same time I am very happy to have Julia again leading our parish choir! Julia is a very accomplished director, and we are fortunate to have her on our parish team in this important position. Please join me in welcoming Julia back as our parish Choir Director!

With Love in the Risen Lord,

Fr. Gregory

A Word from the Holy Fathers 
13/5/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"For our goal is not merely the purification of the passions: this by itself is not real virtue, but preparation for virtue. To purification from vicious habits must be added the acquisition of the virtues... For after abandoning what is evil, one must practice what is good. One must first deny oneself and then, taking up the cross, must follow the Master towards the supreme state of deification."

St. Theodoros the Great Ascetic

Quoted in "On the Holy Apostles" by St. Sergius Mechev in "Orthodox Life" Volume 66 No. 1, January - February 2015

Weekly Educational Offering 
10/5/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

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

Victory Day Celebration is May 9 
8/5/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Victory Day (May 9) is coming up. It is a big and important holiday for everyone on this entire planet. Primarily, this is a day of remembrance of the heroic deeds of our (great)grandfathers and (great)grandmothers, who in one way or another played a role in the restoration of peace on Earth and the re-building of the post-war era.

In every family, there are (great)grandparents who have been touched by this war.

Let's all commemorate those thanks to whom we are alive today.

We are planning a memorial event on May 9th:

-It will begin with Vespers at 6:00 PM followed by a Pannykhida for everyone who died during the war and its aftermath
-Next we can all fill the holiday with living history: Let's prepare memorial cards with our children, which can include a picture of the family member and a brief history of the person's involvement in the war.
-If you have a favorite song/poem about the war, please share it. Songs and poems from that time are a memory of how people lived during that period, how they survived the war and its effects, and the big price people payed in order to restore peace in the world.

Please let me know if you can participate in this event.

Sincerely,
Anastasia Klimzo (cantor@stvladimiraami.org)
