Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
11/9/22, 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 12:10-19 & Mark 4:10-23
Tuesday: II Corinthians 12:20-13:2 & Mark 4:24-34
Wednesday: II Corinthians 13:3-14 & Mark 4:35-41
Thursday: Galatians 1:1-10,20-2:5 & Mark 5:1-20
Friday: Galatians 2:6-10 & Mark 5:22-24,35-6:1
Saturday: I Corinthians 4:1-5 & Matthew 23:1-12

: II . 12:10-19 4:10-23
: II . 12:20-13:2 4:24-34
: II . 13:3-14 4:35-41
: . 1:1-10,20-2:5 5:1-20
: .. 2:6-10 5:22-24,35-6:1
: I . 4:1-5 23:1-12

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 
11/9/22, 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!

Cross Procession for Peace is September 17 
9/9/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

On the Saturday that we had originally scheduled our Russian Festival for this year (Saturday, September 17) we will hold a Cross Procession and prayers for peace in Ukraine. There are two options to participate in this action for peace:

1. Join our Cross Procession that day. All are welcome, but there will be no politics AT ALL. We will walk and pray together under the protection of the Cross according to the established Orthodox tradition, asking the Lord to grant peace in Ukraine. The procession begins at 10:00 a.m. More information and a sign up can be found at the link below. Please sign up if you intend to participate. This helps us plan first aid, water, and other necessary material things to make sure all can participate safely:

SIGN UP FOR CROSS PROCESSION

2. Join us for our special prayer service (moleben) for peace after the Cross Procession at St. Vladimirs. All are welcome, but there will be no politics AT ALL. We are interested only in the Lords help because clearly only the Lord can stop the war, and human wisdom has done nothing positive in this regard thus far. The special prayer for peace will take place at St. Vladimirs about 1:00 p.m. That is, when the Cross Procession ends. Doors will be open beginning at 12:00 p.m. for those who would like to pray quietly in the church and wait for the Cross Procession to return.

Even if you cannot join us, please read this prayer for peace in Ukraine and America at 1:00 p.m. that day this is about the time we will be reading this same prayer at St. Vladimirs:

This Sunday is a Special Day (and Saturday is too) 
8/9/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

This Sunday we commemorate the Beheading of St. John the Baptist. This is not one of the twelve great feasts of the Church, but liturgically it is essentially identical to one of the twelve great feasts. For that reason we will add a Litya (blessing of 5 loaves) to the Vigil on Saturday night. Weather permitting we will serve the Litya outside (before the main doors of the church). DO NOT MISS this very interesting, edifying, and educational service! And please remember that this Sunday is a fast day, one of the rare one-day fasts of the Church. This fast is instituted in commemoration of the day: the Beheading of St. John the Baptist.
