Things We Sing Together at St. Vladimir's 
9/7/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

There are several prayers that we sing together at St. Vladimir's. We want you to know this so that you can practice. :) And the pandemic is the perfect time to practice MORE! That way we will sing these with zeal - with power! WE SHOULD BE LIFTING THE ROOF WHEN WE SING THESE - THEY SHOULD BE SUNG VERY STRONGLY - ESPECIALLY THE CREED AND "HAVING BEHELD THE RESURRECTION..."

Saturday Vigil (and matins during Pentecost) - "Having Beheld the Resurrection of Christ":

Everyone should own a prayer book. We strongly recommend the Jordanville edition, and we have this in our parish kiosk in English and Russian. However, sometimes we don't have a prayer book handy, or sometimes we need practical tools in our "prayer kit".

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
8/7/20, 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 Children: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Sunday Liturgy begins at 9:00 a.m. NEW INFORMATION 
6/7/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Until further notice Divine Liturgy on Sunday begins at 9:00 a.m. Set up for the Divine Liturgy begins at 8:00 a.m. Please come to help if you can! All parish calendars have been updated to reflect the new start time. Please pass the word to those who you know or suspect will not see this announcement.

Please note: although the disease is much less likely to spread outside, it is still important to physically distance. It is understood: everyone is tired of pandemic restrictions! But the point of worshiping outside is not just because we can essentially welcome as many people as would like to attend, but also to lower the opportunity for the virus to spread. Please be conscious of physical distancing and please kindly and lovingly remind others who forget this. No one wants to spread the virus but it is easy to forget to physically distance.

Parents please note: you must supervise your children during the outside services! Children are not allowed to play in the neighbors yards during the service. If we are not diligent about this our neighbors will start to dislike us, and that is not good for anyone. Thank you for seeing to this.

It was very warm under the tents yesterday. We are examining how we can aleviate that going forward. Please provide us other feedback so that we can do this better by emailing info@stvladimiraami.org visiting this feedback form:

Monday First Things: Teaching of the Holy Fathers 
6/7/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


If you give something to one in need, let the cheerfulness of your face precede your gift, and comfort his sorrow with kind words. When you do this, by your gift the gladness of his mind surpasses even the needs of his body.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
5/7/20, 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: Romans 12:4-5,15-21 & Matthew 12:9-13
Tuesday: Romans 14:9-18 & Matthew 12:14-16,22-30
Wednesday: Romans 15:7-16 & Matthew 12:38-45
Thursday: Romans 15:17-29 & Matthew 12:46-13:3
Friday: Romans 16:1-16 & Matthew 13:4-9
Saturday: Romans 8:14-21 & Matthew 9:9-13

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