Church School Year begins September 21 - Register Now! 
31/8/19, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


On August 22 our Church School faculty met with our Church School Coordinator, Alexandra Pyrozhenko. The meeting was marked by a spirit of cooperation and with great zeal to execute the ministry of teaching our children and young adults the important aspects of their faith they will need to persist as active members of the Holy Church as adults. The Church School Year will begin on September 21, on the feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos. That day all Church School students are invited to attend the Divine Liturgy, partake of the Holy Mysteries, and prepare a gift for the Mother of God: a poem, a song, art work, etc. - each child should use the talents the Lord has given him or her to prepare a gift for our most important intercession before the Lord.

Walk of Life Canceled 
30/8/19, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Unfortunately, due to a lack of registrants, the Walk of Life Pilgrimage has to be canceled for this year. Many, many thanks to all who worked so hard to prepare for the walk, and many condolences! Unfortunately so few people registered that it simply made no sense to expend so many resources for such a small number. May God reward all who worked so hard in this life and the next even though the pilgrimage will not take place this year.

Spring and Summer Brings Missionaries to our Doors - Share the Orthodox Faith 
29/8/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As the weather grows warm missionaries from various religions tend to appear at our homes. At St. Vladimir's we have many pamphlets and booklets on the Orthodox Faith that are free for anyone to take. These can be found at the back of the church near the main entrance doors. Please feel free to take information home with you to share with the missionaries that come to visit you. It seems only fair that if they want us to take their information that we offer them information about Orthodox Christianity. Many missionaries have found the Orthodox Church in this way. No one is mandated to do this, but if you would like to you are welcome to. Please feel free to contact Fr. Gregory with questions in this regard.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
26/8/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


You receive the Cup which seemingly comes from the hands of man. What is it to you whether the bearer of the Cup acts righteously or unrighteously? As a follower of Jesus, your concern is to act righteously; to receive the Cup with thanksgiving to God and with a living faith; and courageously to drink it to the dregs.

An anonymous donor has made a $1,000 Matching Grant available for a special collection for our Zoe for Life joint ministry with St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. This is for donations to St. Vladimir made from now until the end of the Liturgy on Sunday, August 25, 2019 and designated for Zoe for Life. We will hold a special collection on August 25 in support of this matching grant, but if you would like to make a donation before then please give your donation to our Treasurer, Mikhail Fisenkov or our Starosta, Jack Mitchell. We thank our anonymous donor and all who will give to help Zoe for Life, a pan-Orthodox effort that helps mothers to decide not to abort their children by providing them with material support they need for their child. If you would like to learn more about Zoe for Life please contact Fr. Gregory, Addie Lanterman, or Leta Nikulshina. Volunteers are always welcome and needed for this important ministry!
