Diocesan Fund for those Those in Need of Assistance Collection is this Sunday 
22/11/14, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
This Sunday marks the annual collection for the diocesan fund for those in need of assistance. As the diocesan secretary Fr. Gregoryk can vouch for the fact that this fund is one that is used often. In general these funds are used to help those who are not covered by the St. John Kochurov Fund (that fund covers Missions, Monasteries, and Youth), but who are nonetheless in great need. Your generosity at this time of thanks (Thanksgiving is just around the corner and this collection is timed to coincide with that holiday) is greatly appreciated by the diocese, and by those members of the diocese who find themselves in circumstances of privation. If you are unable to join us for this Sunday's liturgy please contact our Starosta to make a contribution to this fund before or after the fact. Thank you!

Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please find the annual appeal for the St. John Kochurov Society here:

http://www.stvladimiraami.org/pamphlets ... al2014.pdf

Our parish has had the largest number of members of this society since its inception in 2009. The society supports Youth, Missions, and Monasteries in the Diocese of Chicago & Mid-America. That is our diocese! :) Please help if you can. Even a small donation can make a big difference when it is added to many other small donations.

Please feel free to share this information with others Ц the more people we can get to be members of the St. John Society the more support we can provide for these worthy endeavors in our diocese!

Great Martyr Demetrius Celebrated Tonight & Tomorrow 
7/11/14, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
The yearly feast of St. Demetrius of Thessalonica is November 8 on the civil calendar. That date is this tomorrow! At St. Vladimir's we have the unique blessing to have the relics of St. Demetrius in the foundation of our parish church. Therefore, it is both our duty and our pleasure to hold Divine Services on the feast of St. Demetrius each year. We will mark the feast with Vigil this evening at 6:00 p.m. and Divine Liturgy at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. This is very big day for our parish - a sort of second patronal feast. Please join us as your schedule allows! Learn more about St. Demetrius at the links below.

Time Changes 11/2/14 Ц Avoid the Horror of Arriving Early! 
27/10/14, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Of course we are joking Ц it is GOOD to come to the Divine Services early, but we also want you to remember that we Уfall backФ one hour on Sunday, November 2, 2014. That is, Daylight Savings Time ends and we adjust our clocks before going to bed by turning them back by one hour. If you forget do not worry Ц confessions begin at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday in any case, so you will really be right on time! :)

Demetrius Saturday is this Saturday 
22/10/14, 06:00 PM

The memorial Saturday which falls before the feast of the Great Martyr Demetrius generally falls on the Saturday proceeding St. Demetrius' commemoration, October 26/November 8. This year, however, that Saturday is November 1 and the feast of St. John of Kronstadt. Thus, Demetrius Saturday falls two weeks before the feast. At St. Vladimir's the memorial Demetrius Saturday will be celebrated on October 25 at 6:00 p.m. And October 26 at 8:00 a.m. Please join us as your schedule allows! More information about Demetrius Saturday can be found at the links below.

Optina Elders Celebrated Tonight and Tomorrow 
22/10/14, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please join us for the feast of the Optina Elders this evening at 6:00 p.m. and tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. The monastic saints of the Optina monastery are not simply historical personages, but rather are those, as are the other saints of the Church, who have attained a place at the throne of God and entreat Him on our behalf. Thus, they are important for us in our days, just as they were important for those who were their contemporaries. Please learn more about the Optina Elders at the links below and please join us this evening and tomorrow morning as your schedule allows!

Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please note that the memorial services for Demetrius Saturday have been moved. Since we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the glorification of St. John of Kronstadt on November 1 the services for Demetrius Saturday has been moved to TWO Saturdays (rather than the usual one Saturday) before the feast of St. Demetrius. Thus, Evening Services for Demetrius Saturday are set for 6:00 p.m. on October 24 with Divine Liturgy on October 25 at 8:00 a.m. followed by a pannykhida for all departed parish family members. Please join us!
