Lenten Conversations about Finances 
23/12/14, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
During the Nativity Lenten period we will continue to offer our parish family opportunities to learn more about our parish finances and how our parish family can help support our parish. This is from our Starosta:

"Id like to announce that during the Nativity Fast I will have financial 'open houses' for a couple hours on Sundays from 3 to 5 PM. Please attend any or all of them. I hope that we can have fruitful discussions about the parish and our financial situation.

On Sunday December 7 and 21, theyll be in English.
On December 14 and 28 they will be in Russian.

Theyll be at our house: 2065 Chalmers Dr., Ann Arbor--just west of Arborland, down the street from Paesanos restaurant."

Please plan to attend those discussions that you would like to and please spread the word. This is our parish - we need to know about it and how to help support it. All are welcome!

For those who prefer the open discussions we've had at our parish during coffee hour on Sundays from time to time those will return again as well - but during this Lenten period we will concentrate on smaller, more intimate meetings. Please direct questions to our Starosta, Nathan Longan, or Fr. Gregory.

Or her You Tube Channel:


Please make plans to join us! The presentation will begin at 1:00 p.m. This should allow for a nice, moderate celebration of New Year's Eve for those who choose to celebrate, but still give ample time to be to St. Vladimir's on this civil holiday (when very few of our parishioners will have to work) to participate in the presentation and discussion. Spread the word! DON'T MISS IT!

Parish Preschool First Meeting in Preparation for Fall 2015 is December 21 
20/12/14, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
For several years we have talked about a parish preschool for our children (and the children of those outside the parish who would be interested in an Orthodox preschool). In order to accomplish this laudable goal we need to gage interest and support from our community especially our families with young children who would enroll in the preschool. Therefore, during the parish meal on December 21 we will gather all those interested and discuss the best path forward. YOUR INPUT IS WELCOME! We are not exactly sure how we are going to to this, but the support of this idea has been very strong and so we want to investigate this seriously. Please join us on December 21 for this meeting. If you are unable to be present, but you are interested in providing input or in helping to get a preschool off the ground please contact Fr. Gregory. See you December 14! Please spread the word to those you know or suspect would be interested in joining us!

Last College Age Dinner of this Semester is December 21 
19/12/14, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please join us at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 21 at Fr. Gregory's home for our monthly Young Adult/College Age dinner. The discussion last time was quite broad. That is not bad by any means in fact the discussion was great! This time we will set a topic and just see what happens. :) The topic will be: Comparative Theology of the Nativity what the Lord's Incarnation Means to Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant Christians. We all deal with people of various stripes of Christianity every day. And in fact, we could argue that the Lord's birth means something important to Muslims too (even if they wouldn't admit that quite as readily as we might). In any case there is lots to discuss on this topic and it is likely to lead us to others and that is good! Please join us and please let us know you will be there by singing up at the link below. See you Sunday!
