All are welcome to come join our parishioners Downriver to celebrate their new feast day. The Mission was previously named All Saints, but has been renamed by Archbishop Peter "Christ the Savior Mission" with the feast day of August 29.

Summer is a time when many people go on vacation – and often we are seeking something to read while we are on vacation. Why not help yourself spiritually and pick up a book from the Kiosk or check one out from our parish Library? We have wonderful resources for you – please take advantage of these for your own spiritual growth!

Weekly Educational Offering 
23/8/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults. Parents are asked to review the children’s 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:

Please consider joining this effort again this year. In past years St. Vladimir's has been very well represented, but this year it is not being hosted in our parish, but in Northern Indiana. Not a far drive to be sure. We are hoping for another great St. Vladimir's turnout. Please register today!

Divine Liturgy Explained 
17/8/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The Divine Service we attend most often is the Divine Liturgy. We know it, but do we know it? The better we understand the Divine Liturgy the more we will engage in this "work of the people", and the more we will get from it. Or perhaps better put, the more it will transform us. And since we are seeking to be transformed into the children of God, should we not take the time to delve more deeply into the Divine Liturgy - the most theologically significant Divine Service? That is a purely rhetorical question of course, since the answer must be "yes"! The article below is a classic of the 20th century, written by one of the most influential theologians of that time. That time was not that long ago - and this article is well, well worth the read!

Transfiguration of the Lord is August 19 
16/8/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The great feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord falls on August 19 each year. At this feast, following the Divine Liturgy, we bless the first fruits that are becoming ripe as the harvest begins. In the Greek tradition usually grapes were blessed. In the Russian tradition usually apples. Any fruit is acceptable. Please bring your basket with fruits to the Divine Liturgy on the feast!

Learning more about our Faith 
15/8/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Our Orthodox Christian faith is a great gift given to us by our Lord and Savior Himself. As with any gift we should be grateful for this one, but realize also that it is our responsibility not just to be grateful in the abstract, but to delve into our faith, to lean about our faith, to know our faith – not as an abstraction, but because it is helpful for our salvation to understand the gift that the Lord has given us. To learn more about your faith please visit the special web page we have created on our site for this express purpose. The address is found below. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions regarding this or any spiritual topic.
