Halloween Alternative + 50th Anniversary of the Glorification of St. John of Kronstadt Please Join Us! 
20/10/14, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
It has become our tradition to provide an alternative to our parish families that choose not to participate in the Halloween festivities this time of year. At St. Vladimir's we will start the Halloween alternative on October 30 at 6:00 p.m. with Vespers and Matins for the Apostle Luke. At 8:00 a.m. on October 31 we will celebrate Divine Liturgy for the Apostle Luke. Following the Divine Liturgy we have organized a hike with a treasure hunt for our young people. Those under 14 must be accompanied by a parent. Children will eat lunch on the hikes that lunch should be provided by the child's parents. After the hike we will return to St. Vladimir's for a 5:00 p.m. Vigil to St. John of Kronstadt. Liturgy for St. John will be served at 8:00 a.m. on November 1. November 1, 2014 marks 50 years since the glorification of St. John! All are welcome to join us for any part of these special days at St. Vladimir's!

Church School Pilgrimage is December 12-15, 2014 
20/10/14, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
With Bishop Peter's blessing we will hold our first Church School pilgrimage this year December 12-15. We invite all our Church School students, parents, and teachers to participate in this spiritually important growth opportunity! Pilgrimage is a venerable tradition of the Orthodox Church visiting and supporting monasteries helps the monks and nuns do their important work: praying for the entire world. Such a pilgrimage with our Church School also helps the young people to see that monasticism is a real option in life something that they can either engage in or at the very least support. The health of the Church has always been measured by the health of the monasteries. Participating in pilgrimages helps to strengthen these crucially important spiritual institutions. Our pilgrimage will be to Holy Dormition Convent in Rives Junction, MI. This is a beautiful monastery with many divine services, scenic views, and a very nice guest house. We have reserved the entire guest house 24 beds. We have many more students, parents, and teachers than this, so PLEASE reserve your space right away by contacting our Church School Coordinator, Lilia Vershynin!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
19/10/14, 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: Philippians 2:12-16 & Luke 7:36-50
Tuesday: Philippians 2:16-23 & Luke 8:1-3
Wednesday: Philippians 2:24-30 & Luke 8:22-25
Thursday: Philippians 3:1-8 & Luke 9:7-11
Friday: Philippians 3:8-19 & Luke 9:12-18
Saturday: II Corinthians 1:8-11 & Luke 6:1-10

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:
