Racism in the Church & Care for the Garden 
24/7/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The Church exists in the world by design. The Lord founded His Church to provide a haven for those who live in the world but who seek the Kingdom of God. But, because the Church exists in the world, ideas foreign to her from time to time seep in. It is our job as Orthodox Christians to maintain the purity of the faith and, as St. Paul says, to test the spirits. Put another way, we all need to have our personal spiritual filter, built and strengthened by our ongoing struggle to be transformed into the children of God. But as a Church we need to have such a filter too, and the faithful have the responsibility to sound the alarm when something sneaks through the filter...

Bishop Visit Preparation: Pious Behavior in Church + 3 Lampadas 
23/7/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Of course we should behave appropriately in church and we believe that everyone WANTS to behave appropriately, but sometimes we dont know or we forget about the special times in the Divine Service when we should not move about, or other important aspects of our worship. We include below a little pamphlet which reminds us of these things, and which also outlines the schema of the lights above the royal doors at St. Vladimirs (when the outside lamps are lit we should not move about unless it is a matter of life and death). Please review this pamphlet and please see Fr. Gregory with questions. We appreciate sincerely your efforts to behave appropriately in the parish church during the Divine Services!

THREE LAMPADAS ABOVE ROYAL DOORS

Bishop Visit Preparation: Greeting Others in Church 
22/7/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As we prepare ourselves for Archbishop Peters visit and examine some of the practices that we have acquired during the course of the pandemic we should also examine how we greet others in church. If you arrive before the beginning of the Divine Services (before the Hours on Sunday or before the Vigil on Saturday) it is permissible to speak briefly with others in a whisper in the church proper. Any extended conversations should be taken outside. If, however, you arrive at the church when the Divine Services have already begun, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES is it permissible to begin any sort of conversation. You may bow to your friends as a greeting as you take your place in the church. The parish church is Gods House. It is a place for worship. This is sometimes a challenge for us since we have our parish meal in the church rather than in a separate hall. Nonetheless, let us strive to remember not to talk during the Divine Services, and be humble if we need to be reminded of this by the Parish Council member on duty.

BIshop Visit Preparation - Catechumens Bow Your Heads 
22/7/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


As we review our parish practices in preparation for Archbishop Peter's visit we would like to share this small correction with you. At about the midway point of the Divine Liturgy the Deacon intones "Catechumens bow your heads unto the Lord!". And the Catechumens should in fact do this. But those who are not Catechumens should not. :) No one will be fined or otherwise punished for doing this - but it is good for us to be the rational sheep of the flock of our Lord Jesus Christ and follow the directions the Deacons and Priests are giving us as a worshiping Eucharistic community during the Divine Liturgy to the greatest extent we can. Please see me with questions.

Fr. Gregory
