We welcome your feedback. We know that we have great ideas in our parish but we fear that many of those ideas are still in our parishioners heads. That is that they have not shared them with us. Please share! Reach out to Fr. Gregory, Jack Mitchell, or use our feedback form:

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
21/9/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

What is the aim of the incarnate dispensation of Gods Word, preached in all the Holy Scriptures but which we, who read them, do not know? The only aim is that, having entered into what is our own, we should participate in what is His. The Son of God has become Son of Man in order to make us, men, sons of God, raising our race by grace to what He is Himself by nature, granting us birth from above through the grace of the Holy Spirit and leading us straightway to the kingdom of heaven, or rather, granting us this kingdom of heaven within us (Luke 17:21), in order that we should not merely be fed by the hope of entering it, but entering into full possession thereof should cry: our life is hid with Christ in God (Col. 3:3).

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
20/9/20, 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: Galatians 4:28-5:10 & Mark 6:54-7:8
Tuesday: Galatians 5:11-21 & Mark 7:5-16
Wednesday: Galatians 6:2-10 & Mark 7:14-24
Thursday: Ephesians 1:1-9 & Mark 7:24-30
Friday: Ephesians 1:7-17 & Mark 8:1-10
Saturday: I Corinthians 2:6-9 & Matthew 10:37-11:1

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

Posted by Fr. Gregory

There are several prayers that we sing together at St. Vladimir's. We want you to know this so that you can practice. :) And the pandemic is the perfect time to practice MORE! That way we will sing these with zeal - with power! WE SHOULD BE LIFTING THE ROOF WHEN WE SING THESE - THEY SHOULD BE SUNG VERY STRONGLY - ESPECIALLY THE CREED AND "HAVING BEHELD THE RESURRECTION..."

Saturday Vigil (and matins during Pentecost) - "Having Beheld the Resurrection of Christ":
