Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
1/1/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults on the upcoming Sunday's principle Gospel reading so that all can better prepare for the Divine Services. Parents are asked to review the childrens portion with their children. It is very important for us to attend the Divine Services on Sundays and whenever else we are able, but in addition it is our spiritual responsibility to educate ourselves and our families in the faith. It is our hope that this mid-week offering will be an aid in this regard. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or suggestions.

For All: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

New Year Moleben is TONIGHT 
31/12/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The civil New Year falls on January 1 each year. Even though the Church celebrates the New Year on September 1/14, it is never a bad idea to glorify God for creating the world for us, and to encourage all to make good decisions in the next year. So we serve a moleben each year on December 31. This year we will gather at 7:00 p.m. to glorify God for the last year and ask His help in the coming year.

As many are aware, the Soviets decided they would distract people from worshiping the newly incarnate Christ Child on the feast of the Nativity by "replacing" the Church holiday with the civil New Year. As is always - ALWAYS - the case when the enemies of God try to mock Him they only end up glorifying Him all the more. The main saints commemorated on December 19/January 1 are Martyrs Agladia and Boniface! Irony doesn't even begin to describe the fact that while the world recovers from its collective hangover the Holy Church is singing the praises of these patron saints of moderation. Don't understand the irony? Read the lives of these favorites of God below!

Prayer is necessary not for God but for us; it is like spiritual oxygen without which a person dies. This conversation with God provides a source of life for a person.

Matching Grant this Nativity Lent 
28/12/19, 06:00 AM
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. Vladimirs 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. Vladimirs 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.

Congratulations to those Celebrating Nativity Today 
25/12/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We congratulate all our parish friends and family who are celebrating the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ today. Although we will not celebrate for 13 days as a parish we understand that most of our society is celebrating today - and whether you celebrate today or in 13 days it is still remarkable and noteworthy that more than 2000 years after the birth of the Savior the world still pauses to note His Incarnation on this day. May this be the year that the hymn of the angels heard all those centuries ago over Bethlehem be actualized in our world: Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, goodwill and peace.
