Please mark your calendars now for every second Saturday of the month for an all-parish work day. Every season. Every month. Inside. Outside. Always every second Saturday starting at 10:00 a.m. please plan to join us to pitch in as we make our parish shine as the House of God that it is! Invite friends! Everyone is welcome! And it just isnt fair to expect that someone else will do this. We all own our parish in that the Lord has given us to be here and to the responsibility that He has given us to care for His House.

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
20/7/22, 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.

God willing, Subdeacon Dmitri Mihaliov will be ordained a deacon on Saturday, August 27 for service at our St. Vladimir parish. Ordination is the sacrament of the Holy Church that we probably least often participate in, but it is important that we all participate in this ordination appropriately. We ask all our parishioners to review the ordination instructions here and to address questions to Fr. Gregory or Fr. Colin. Please remember - the Divine Liturgy begins at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 27.

Cross Procession Sunday, July 24 
18/7/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

In order to help our friends and neighbors learn about the existence of Orthodox Christianity (many people do not even know we exist!), we will conduct a series of Cross Processions in our local communities. The first will be July 24 after the parish meal. After the short procession (around 1 mile walking at most) we will end at some logical place (town square, etc.) and hold a short concert. We will provide a traditional Orthodox witness to our communities: we will have information about Orthodox Christianity available for those who are interested, and talk to those who would like to learn more. If you would like to take part in the Cross Processions please sign up at the link below:

CROSS PROCESSION SUNDAY, JULY 24

All are welcome - join us!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
18/7/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The freedom of rational faculties has always been tested and until now, is tested until they are confirmed in goodness. This is because goodness is not confirmed without trial. Every Christian is tested by something: one by poverty, another by illness, a third by various bad thoughts, a fourth by some calamity or humiliation, while another by various doubts. And through this, firmness of faith, hope, and love of God are tested.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
17/7/22, 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 16:17-24 & Matthew 13:10-23
Tuesday: I Corinthians 1:1-9 & Matthew 13:24-30
Wednesday: I Corinthians 2:9-3:8 & Matthew 13:31-36
Thursday: I Corinthians 3:18-23 & Matthew 13:36-43
Friday: I Corinthians 4:5-8 & Matthew 13:44-54
Saturday: Romans 9:1-5 & Matthew 9:18-26

: . 16:17-24 13:10-23
: I . 1:1-9 13:24-30
: I . 2:9-3:8 13:31-36
: I . 3:18-23 13:36-43

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirs + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
17/7/22, 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. Vladimirs 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!
