Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirís + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
5/11/20, 06:00 PM
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. Vladimirís 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!

Demetrius Saturday is this Saturday 
4/11/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Each year around the feast of St. Demetrius of Thessalonica (whose relics reside in our parish foundation) there is a special Church-wide commemoration of the departed: Demetrius Saturday. This year Demetrius Saturday falls on November 7. At St. Vladimir's we will hold Vespers & Matins on Friday, November 6 at 6:00 p.m. and Divine Liturgy and a Pannykhida on Saturday, November 7 at 8:00 a.m. Please email names for the memorial services to info@stvladimiraami.org. Differentiate between Orthodox and non-Orthodox departed. We pray for both, but we pray differently and we want to do this appropriately Ė according to the Churchís established practices.

Election Day is Tomorrow - Let us Choose as Christians 
2/11/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The last two weeks Archbishop Peter has asked us to conduct a special moleben at the end of the Sunday Divine Liturgy asking the Lordís help for our country as we approach election day. Sadly there is much dissension in our country now. It seems to me (and perhaps I am just being romantic, but I don't think so) that Election Day used to be a day when we would celebrate our democracy Ė our ability to choose our own leaders freely. It seems that this is no longer the case Ė at least not this year. We still have the ability to choose freely, but the overall tenor of the society is rather negative - not celebratory...

Silence in Church Please - EVEN IN THE BARN 
29/10/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It is important that we make an effort Ė a real effort Ė to refrain from speaking in church. Since we have been outside most of the summer we have unfortunately adapted our outside paradigm to church services rather than our church paradigm to being outside. LET'S NOT DO THIS AS WE BEGIN WORSHIPING IN THE BARN! If one absolutely must have a conversation during the time of the Divine Services this should be done either:

1. In the kiosk area IN VERY HUSHED TONES. The acoustics are excellent in the barn. The choir's beautiful voices carry throughout the space very readily - as do your conversations. :)

2. Outside (but please do not slam the barn door)

3. Most appropriately, unless the conversation involves a life or death situation: at the meal after the Divine Liturgy

4. We ask parents that if they bring toys for their children that these be soft toys that to do not make noise when dropped on the floor or on the benches.

Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns.
