Part of the Matthew 25 Challenge: I was hungry and you fed Me

Please join us for the Chelsea/Dexter Crop Hunger Walk! There is no cost to participate, but all who participate are asked to try to raise at least $100. One-fourth of the funds raised stays in our community to support local hunger and poverty fighting programs.

Posted by Fr. Gregory

Inspired by the incredible work of Fr. Vladimir Klimzo in Russia, and with the understanding that here in American the vast majority (perhaps up to 80% according to some studies) of families with special needs children or adult children do not attend church ALTHOUGH THEY WOULD LIKE TO we intend to establish a Special Needs Ministry at St. Vladimirs. We need one or two more people in addition to our present team to move this important ministry forward. If you can help please contact Fr. Gregory or email info@stvladimiraami.org. Join us in providing a spiritual home for those seeking one, but struggling to connect with a parish family!

Divine Liturgy Explained 
27/9/18, 06:00 AM
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!
