Special Needs Ministry We Need You! 
16/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Inspired by the incredible work of Fr. Vladimir Klimzo in Russia, and with the understanding that here in American the vast majority (perhaps up to 80% according to some studies) of families with special needs children or adult children do not attend church ALTHOUGH THEY WOULD LIKE TO we intend to establish a Special Needs Ministry at St. Vladimirs. We need one or two more people in addition to our present team to move this important ministry forward. If you can help please contact Fr. Gregory or email info@stvladimiraami.org. Join us in providing a spiritual home for those seeking one, but struggling to connect with a parish family!

Weekly Educational Offering 
13/6/18, 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: an explanation of this coming Sunday's Gospel reading from Blessed Theophylact:

No Cell Phones in Church Please 
12/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please be courteous to your fellow worshipers and be sure to turn off your cell phone when entering the church, or at the very least turn the ringer to the vibrate function. When traveling in Russia Fr. Gregory saw this sign: "Those cell phones that ring in church will be submerged in Holy Water!". We will not go that far, but we hope this helps you remember how important it is to turn off your phone...

Thank you for you attention to this important matter!

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
11/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

You need not be despondent. Let those be despondent who do not believe in God. For them sorrow is burdensome, of course, because besides earthly enjoyment they have nothing. But believers must not be despondent, for through sorrows they receive the right of sonship, without which is impossible to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

40 Consecutive Liturgy Commemoration Now Available 
8/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Many people ask us for 40-day commemorations at the Divine Liturgy. This practice remembering someone who is ill or who has died for 40 consecutive days at the Divine Liturgy is known as Sorokoust. We do not serve Liturgy every day at St. Vladimir's. But we did serve 122 Liturgies last year. Thank God we have the opportunity to serve Liturgy often. We provide a sort of modified Sorokoust for our parish family. We can commemorate your friends or loved ones at 40 consecutive Liturgies. This will take more than 40 days, but nonetheless it will indeed be helpful for those who are commemorated. Please arrange these special commemorations with Fr. Gregory or with Albina Seraphimovna at the parish kiosk. There is no cost for these commemorations, but it is common to give a donation in thanksgiving for the prayers. The amount is completely up to those arranging the Sorokoust and, as with other special services at St. Vladimir's, should be based on your financial situation. If God has blessed you with much you should give much. If He has blessed you with little, you should give little. Please see Fr. Gregory with questions about this or any other spiritual issue.
