Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
7/9/22, 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.

For Various Ages: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

A2OCA We Need You All & We Need You Now! 
5/9/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We all, to a greater or lesser extent, support the various ministries in our parish. But the ministry that we are most focused on now, our Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy, has struggled greatly to get our parish family to engage and help. Venerable Dorotheos of Gaza, one of the most important monastic fathers of the Church, writes: If a man is doing something according to God, trial of some kind will come upon him, for trial and temptation either preceed or follow all good. Neither is it sure that the thing is happening according to God, unless it is proved so by trials and temptations. By this measure it is SUPER CLEAR that this project is according to God. And let us thank God for that!

But we also need to work to overcome the trials and temptations as a parish family, not just sit back and watch them happen. This school is OURS not someone elses. Given that, I am calling us all to redouble our efforts at seeing our school project succeed! First and foremost by prayer. Entreat the Lord for His continued blessings! And entreat Him to continue to send workers to His harvest! And second, decide today that you are going to become one of those workers yourself! Third, please support the school as you can financially. Note that the money part is THIRD! There are other things that are more important that anyone can do and which everyone should do, beginning with prayer.

BECOME A WORKER AT THE LORDS HARVEST TODAY! Share the flyers below with two families you know who have children of the appropriate age group AND ask them to share the flyers with two families they know. People cannot send their children to the school if they do not know about it. You know people share with those people you know today!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
5/9/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Condemn youself and try to correct yourself. But we cannot correct ourselves if we do not begin with self-reproach (and not reproaching others) and with forcing ourselves to be obedient to our elders.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
4/9/22, 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: II Corinthians 8:7-15 & Mark 3:6-12
Tuesday: II Corinthians 8:16-9:5 & Mark 3:13-19
Wednesday: II Corinthians 9:12-10:7 & Mark 3:20-27
Thursday: II Corinthians 10:7-18 & Mark 3:28-35
Friday: II Corinthians 11:5-21 & Mark 4:1-9
Saturday: I Corinthians 2:6-9 & Matthew 22:15-22

: II . 8:7-15 3:6-12
: II . 8:16-9:5 3:13-19
: II . 9:12-10:7 3:20-27
: II . 10:7-18 3:28-35
: II . 11:5-21 4:1-9
: I . 2:6-9 22:15-22

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

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirs + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
4/9/22, 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!
