Commemorations at the Divine Liturgy 
5/8/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The single best way for us to pray for our friends and loved ones is to arrange for them to be remembered at the Divine Liturgy. We serve approximately 130 Divine Liturgies per year, so your friends or loved ones will be prayed for approximately ever three days as a rule at St. Vladimir's. Please visit the page linked below to learn more and to arrange for your friends and loved ones to be commemorated at the Divine Liturgy at St. Vladimirs

You Are a Missionary 
5/8/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The Lord has entrusted us with the Pearl of Great Price the Orthodox Faith. Are we hiding this? Are we keeping it for ourselves? Or are we following the example of the Apostles and working actively to spread our saving faith? If you had the cure for a bodily disease like cancer you would never keep that to yourself it is obvious that this would be unethical and sinful. But we have the cure for DEATH! And sadly we mostly keep it to ourselves. And that is even more unethical and sinful that hiding the cure for any bodily disease. Share your faith. Invite a friend, loved one, or neighbor to the Divine Services this coming weekend and assure them that you will be there to welcome them to St. Vladimirs. If we would all do this if we would make just a minimal effort to invite others we would need to seriously rethink the size of the new church we plan to build because it would be way TOO SMALL. Lets do that. Lets make all our plans useless because there are just too many people in our parish family! Success only comes before work in the dictionary let us get to work spreading our Orthodox Faith by simply inviting others to join us at St. Vladimirs!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
4/8/21, 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 Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

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

There are several prayers that we sing together at St. Vladimir's. We want you to know this so that you can practice. :) And as we come out of the pandemic it is the perfect time to practice MORE! That way we will sing these with zeal - with power! WE SHOULD BE LIFTING THE ROOF WHEN WE SING THESE - THEY SHOULD BE SUNG VERY STRONGLY - ESPECIALLY THE CREED AND "HAVING BEHELD THE RESURRECTION..."

Saturday Vigil (and matins during Pentecost) - "Having Beheld the Resurrection of Christ":

Because we all have passions we ought not to have complete faith in our own [goodness of] heart, for a crooked rule makes the crooked straight and the straight crooked.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
1/8/21, 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: I Corinthians 5:9-6:11 & Matthew 13:54-58
Tuesday: I Corinthians 6:20-7:12 & Matthew 14:1-13
Wednesday: I Corinthians 7:12-24 & Matthew 14:35-15:11
Thursday: I Corinthians 7:24-35 & Matthew 15:12-21
Friday: I Corinthians 7:35-8:7 & Matthew 15:29-31
Saturday: Romans 12:1-3 & Matthew 10:37-11:1

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.
