Welcome to the Home Page of St. Vladimir Church! 

Today's Date According to the Church (Old) Calendar:





According to the Executive Order of Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Policy of the Diocese of Chicago & Mid-America, St. Vladimir's is temporarily closed to public worship due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although we are saddened by this situation, we also understand that in this war all of society – including our St. Vladimir’s family – must unite to defeat the virus enemy. All resources must be brought to bear if victory is to be obtained. For us that means isolating ourselves from each other so that we do not in any way endanger those in our community who are at high risk of death from the virus. Most of us are healthy. Most of us are strong. Most of us will be unaffected by the virus. But we have to do our part – we have to fight selfish self interest – and we have to follow the advice of the experts and be obedient to the decisions of our ruling bishop. We thank everyone for their understanding and for their efforts to get us to the point of victory over this invisible foe!

Please contact me or Fr. Moses at any time for any spiritual or material support you need during this time of quarantine. With God’s help and our sincere effort we can have great hope in overcoming our common societal enemy! Let it never be said that we did not do our part with sincerity and zeal! Let it never be said that we felt ourselves “special” and not in need of taking part in this war! As Orthodox Christians let us be exemplary members of the society in which the merciful Lord has placed us! Let us serve others with valor and Christian Love, whether that service is (for most of us) just staying home and staying safe, or hands-on service of those in need, or other action that we may be called to in service to the eventual victory! All Divine Services will be broadcast on our Live Streams – please join us and worship with us just as you would when we gather in the Church, but from your own “desert” that the Lord has provided us during this time of Great Lent. We are pilgrims in this life dear brothers and sisters – the pandemic has just reminded us a bit of this reality. Glory to God for this and for all things!

Regular Services:
Saturday Vigil: 6:00 p.m.
Sunday Divine Liturgy: 10:00 a.m.

Monday First Things: Teaching of the Holy Fathers 
9/12/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


“These are challenging times, but these are also times when you need to be attentive to yourselves, so that political passions and human wisdom would not lead us astray from the path of the right faith. If we keep our faith pure, if we try to live by faith, God will send us peace and tranquility. However if we sink into the abyss of human passions, enmity, and confrontation, then, of course, we will stray from the Lord’s way...”

The Ann Arbor Saint – Our Spiritual Responsibility 
5/12/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


December 12. This is a date to put on your calendars. Why? We have been given a HUGE privilege in that the Lord saw fit to allow St. Mardarije (Uskokovic) to repose in Ann Arbor. That is right - we have our own Ann Arbor saint! How many Orthodox Christians all over the world would LOVE to have their own saint! A saint that reposed in their city! And our response to this incredible gift that the the Lord gave us is: YAWN. Nothing. No response. No interest. Really? Have we become that cold to spiritual life that we look at the gift that the Lord gave us and our response is to be simply dead? Where are the newborn boys in our parish named Mardarije? Where are the molebens being served to OUR SAINT? Where is the personal veneration of the big and lovely icon we have in our parish church? Perhaps our issues stem from not knowing the life of this favorite of God.

Matching Grant this Nativity Lent 
4/12/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


A parish family has offered $2500 to our parish as a matching grant for the duration of the Nativity Lent (from now until January 7, 2020). How do we match that gift? By establishing a RECURRING donation to our parish. For every $1 given as a RECURRING donation to St. Vladimir’s we get $1 of that matching grant. A recurring donation is an automatic payment or transfer from your credit card or bank account to St. Vladimir’s that happens on a regular basis that you establish. Usually this is monthly, but you could do it using any frequency that is convenient for you. The key is that the donation be recurring – not a one time donation. Recurring donations are very important for our parish – and they are important for our parish family because they allow our parishioners to make their decisions about stewardship in a considered, prayerful way, and to fulfill the economic welfare piece of what a member of a parish is according to the Normal Parish Bylaws of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia:

“All Orthodox Christians of both sexes, regardless of their nationality, who have reached the age of 21 years, who pay the established membership dues, who make their confession and take Holy Communion not less than once a year, and who take care of the moral and economic welfare of the parish may become parish members.”

Where is the #GivingTuesday Email from our Parish? 
3/12/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Today, no doubt, you have been virtually attacked by emails from various nonprofits asking for support. You may be wondering where the email is from our own St. Vladimir parish. The short answer is: there will not be one. Why? We know that you know that it is part of our spiritual struggle to tithe to support our parish. That being said, those that are in a position to make a donation to another worthwhile charity beyond their tithe may want some advice, and we do have a few favorites that we would like to recommend to you if you are in this position. Please consider supporting one of the following in addition to supporting your parish. We thank you for your support today and all throughout the year!
