How You Can Help! 
1/10/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


People often ask us how they can help our parish. On one level that answer is different for everyone. Each of us should use the talents that the Lord has given us for His glory. But specifically we need more catechists: trained parishioners who can help prepare adults for baptism, Godparents for their duties, and couples for marriage. Our diocesan Pastoral School has a Catechist Program that starts each fall. Please consider if you could enter this two-semester program. More catechists will help our parish A LOT. And if this isnt the thing for you that is fine but please do consider how you can use your talents for Gods glory. We will all answer for that when we leave this life. Lets prepare a good answer beginning today! For more information on our catechism program at St. Vladimir's please see Deacon Colin, who heads up this effort!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
30/9/20, 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 Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

For Children: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Evangelism: Give a Ride to Church 
28/9/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


UM and EMU students need rides to church. We would like to have one person who is the organizer of these rides. This point person would organize drivers who are willing and able to pick up students on Sunday morning. Please talk to Fr. Gregory if you can organize or if you are willing to drive. A little effort in this way can be a BIG help to students. Speaking of Fr. Gregory, he was picked up at his dorm every Sunday morning by Milo & Olga Radulovic for his entire freshman year. We cant promise you well get another priest out of this deal, but this is the right thing to do. Please help if you can!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
28/9/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


To have faith in Christ means more than simply despising the delights of this life. It means we should bear all our daily trials that may bring us sorrow, distress, or unhappiness, and bear them patiently for as long as God wishes and until He comes to visit us. For it is said, I waited on the Lord and He came to me.'
