Being an Authentic Parish 
29/7/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Why do we seek to be an active parish? Living one's faith is part of being an Orthodox Christian. We do not believe in the abstract - we live our faith from the Divine Services, to the Youth Group, to Bible Studies, to our Church School, to our English Divine Service outreach, to our Brotherhood, our Sisterhood, and more. We LIVE our faith. And in case you're not sure that this is really authentic for an Orthodox Christian, please read this letter from Archbishop Peter in this regard:

http://stvladimiraami.org/flyers/abpmid ... -23-16.pdf

Now that you have read our ruling hierarch's letter, please talk to Fr. Gregory. It is understood that not everyone can do everything. But everyone should do what they can. We all have a ministry - please pray about what yours is/should be. And then volunteer to support your ministry, your parish family, and those who are not yet part of the parish family but will be in the future, attracted by the way the love of Christ shines forth from our parish family through our sincere efforts to serve God and our fellow man through being an active parish!

Volunteer Opportunities - Helping Fr. Gregory 
27/7/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As most of our parishioners are aware, Fr. Gregory has several responsibilities in addition to being our parish Rector. He is the Dean of the Michigan Parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, the Dean of our Diocesan Seminary, and the Secretary of the the Diocesan Council. All these things are getting done, but with some help they could be done much better than they are. Presently there are two volunteer opportunities to help Fr. Gregory with these duties:

1. Help with Audio/Visual at St. Vladimir's: we are presently streaming audio of our major Divine Services. This is great! But we would like to revive our "Sound of the Parish" blog. That means we need one or two people to see to it that recorded Divine Services are edited and posted there. We would also like to do more video and still photography. Again - that means we need one or two people to help out.

2. Matthew 25 Leaders: Please have a look at this blog entry:

http://blogtushka.blogspot.com/2017/06/ ... ponse.html

We need people to fill these leadership positions! We have some - we need more. Please help if you can!

3. Church School Teachers: after the Divine Services the Church School is the most important ministry of our parish. Archbishop Peter has blessed the Church School - all children and parents should be participating in this crucial effort. You needn't be a theologian to be a teacher - but you have to be willing to learn. :)

4. Youth Group Volunteers: our young people need to learn about their faith, but they also need to act on that faith - to do good works for the sake of Christ. We need volunteers to help facilitate this important work!

Please contact Fr. Gregory if you would like to volunteer or if you would like to learn more. Each of us has a ministry. Perhaps one of the above opportunities is yours? If not - and that is totally understandable - challenge yourself. What IS your ministry? Please contact Fr. Gregory if you would like to discuss this or any other aspect of our faith.

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimir’s + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
27/7/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Confession and Communion are the two sacraments we most often partake of as Orthodox Christians and thus it behooves us to learn about these, how to prepare for these, and how to best take advantage of the Grace that our Lord freely gives us in these sacraments. At St. Vladimir’s we have created a special web site for this purpose with much information in this regard. Please find the web site listed below and please contact Fr. Gregory with questions!
