Emergency Cards Available 
17/11/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The diocese has provided each of our parishes with Emergency Cards. These cards are to be filled out and put in your wallet so that if it were ever to happen that you were in an accident or otherwise needed spiritual support, but could not speak for yourself, the authorities would find the card in your wallet and call Fr. Gregory to come to you. We hope none of our parishioners ever needs to use one of these cards, but it is a good idea to have one just in case. Please see Fr. Gregory if you have questions. Emergency cards can be found near the front doors - near the pamphlets that are available to all for free.

Nativity Lent Begins 11/28/18 + Extra Divine Services!

Posted by Fr. Gregory


Please note that the yearly Lenten period in preparation for our Lords Nativity begins on November 28. From this day until January 7 we do not partake of meat or dairy products. On many days during this lent fish is allowed. Please consult the parish schedule of services for details in this regard. Have questions about fasting? Never tried to follow the fast before? Please talk to Fr. Gregory for answers! We abstain from meats that we might abstain from the passions... writes St. John Chrysostom. Let us indeed use the fast for what it is a tool to aid us in our spiritual struggle for salvation.

There will be Divine Services at least once during each week of the Nativity Fast OUTSIDE the usual Saturday/Sunday services this year. Sign up today to help with these services (sing, read, serve in the altar) here:

Feast of the Founding of the Church of St. George in Lydda 
16/11/18, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Today is an interesting feast of St. George the Great Martyr. On this day the basilica in Lydda, where St. Georges relics were placed and where they remained for centuries, was consecrated during the reign of St. Constantine the Great. Although a minor feast of St. George it is not a minor feast for our parish family, since this is the Slava of Milo Radulovic, our founding Starosta and a huge force in the establishment of our St. Vladimir parish. We ask your prayers for Milivoje on this day, the day his family many centuries ago rejected paganism and became Christian. May the memory of our Milo be truly eternal and may the merciful Lord reward him in the next life for his work for the Lords Church in this life!

Most of us use amazon.com on some sort of regular basis. Why not do that shopping on Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com) and choose St Vladimir Russian Orthodox Church (Location: Dexter, MI) as your charity?

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
14/11/18, 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: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

For Children: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)
