Fasting Rule for this Week + Eat at Nick’s Big Cheese Grill! 
25/2/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The week before Great Lent (this week) has a unique fasting regiment. This week we are allowed to eat fish and dairy products, but no meat. Here the Holy Church is helping us to prepare ourselves for a good start to Great Lent by allowing us to remove all the dairy products from our homes before Great Lent begins. During this week most folks will probably want a very good grilled cheese sandwich, or other cheesy treats. We should very much stress moderation this week, but it is probably OK to have a treat too. And this is a great opportunity to support our own Nick Vlisides’ sandwich shop “Nick’s Big Cheese Grill”. The shop is located at 2072 Whittaker Rd., Ypsilanti, MI 48197. Support our St. Vladimir’s businesses whenever you can! And start with stopping by Nick’s this week!

New Year’s Resolution + Harass Fr. Gregory 
18/2/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


New Year’s resolution’s are not bad, but they are only good in as much as we actually follow them. Sometimes we make silly resolutions that we know we will not follow. I don’t want us to do that as a parish family. Rather – I think we need to make a resolution that we learn the hymns that Archbishop Peter has asked us to sing together as a parish during the Divine Services. We sing these in English sometimes and in Church Slavonic sometimes. If we want to sing this well, and strong, and triumphantly we need to practice. Success only comes before work in the dictionary! How to practice you ask? Visit this page – all the links are there in English, Church Slavonic, and phonetic Church Slavonic (in Latin letters):

THINGS WE SING TOGETHER AT ST. VLADIMIR'S

Please make a habit of practicing these in both languages. AT A MINIMUM we should memorize these hymns in English or Church Slavonic. And we should sing these TRIUMPHANTLY - not as if we are singing in our sleep!

I am seeking a volunteer to harass me – yes – harass me! About what? The prayer after the meal. We have not been good about doing that. And when I say “we” I mean “me”. So I need some help? Would you like to have the obedience to harass me mercilessly? Please let me know – I need some help with this! Fr. Gregory
