13/11/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

God willing, Subdeacon Dmitry Kashchenko will be ordained a deacon this Sunday for service at our St. Vladimir parish. Ordination is the sacrament of the Holy Church that we least often participate in, but it is important that we all participate in this ordination appropriately. We ask all our parishioners to review the ordination instructions here and to address questions to Fr. Gregory or Fr. Moses. Please remember - the Divine Liturgy begins this coming Sunday at 9:00 a.m.

Ordination Instructions:

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers  
13/11/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

One should not say that it is impossible to reach a virtuous life; but one should say that it is not easy. Nor do those who have reached it find it easy to maintain. Those who are devout and whose intellect enjoys the love of God participate in the life of virtue; the ordinary intellect, however, is worldly and wavering, producing both good and evil thoughts, because it is changeful by nature and directed towards material things. But the intellect that enjoys the love of God punishes the evil which arises spontaneously because of mans laziness.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
12/11/17, 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: I Thessalonians 2:20-3:8 & Luke 11:29-33
Tuesday: I Thessalonians 3:9-13 & Luke 11:34-41
Wednesday: I Thessalonians 4:1-12 & Luke 11:42-46
Thursday: I Thessalonians 5:1-8 & Luke 11:47-12:1
Friday: I Thess. 5:9-13,24-28 & Luke 12:2-12
Saturday: II Corinthians 11:1-6 & Luke 9:1-6

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

By St. Justin (Popovich):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/bible_how.aspx

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/ware_howto.aspx

This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:

http://www.chrysostompress.org/reading_scripture.html

As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:
