At St. Vladimir's we make kits for the homeless several times per year. The next time we will do this is Saturday, December 20 at 3:00 p.m. at the parish church. It is important that we begin this effort on time as the Youth Choir, Bell Ringers, and Altar Servers begin their practice at 4:00 p.m. sharp, with Church School at 5:00 p.m. sharp. Those who are unable to attend but who would like to help with this worthy cause are asked to contact Marina Edwards at info@stvladimiraami.org for more information. Please join us!!!

St. Andrew the First Called

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

Congratulations on this wonderful holiday. Im actually starting the letter before the first star, so technically, unless I get really carried away and Im not done before midnight, this might be more accurately called the eve of the holiday, nevertheless, God willing, many of you will read this on the day we celebrate St. Andrew. It is a wonderful day for this note to be read.

St. Andrew and his brother St. Peter were called by our Lord to be fishers of men. It is often hard to avoid being ensnared by the whirlwind of nets cast by the secular world, but perhaps we can use the time to strive to be among those caught in the salvific nets cast by this great saint.

During this month in particular were bombarded by media urging us to spend, spend, spend, and we can get caught up in the whirlwind...we can get caught up, but we dont have to get caught up. We are fasting because we are preparing ourselves for the celebration of the Nativity, and preparation is about practice and training.

So lets step back a bit and think about what we can do to really make an inner difference, to change ourselves for the better. For me stepping back and thinking has been in large part an exercise in prayer and reflection on this past year.
