Midnight Office Canceled Wednesday 
21/2/23, 11:30 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Due to the confluence of the funeral of Priest Daniel Shirak and the impending ice storm, the Midnight Office scheduled for Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m. has been canceled. Fr. Daniel must be vested in his priestly vestments before the funeral, and with the ice storm approaching, this must be done on Wednesday morning. Please spread the word to those whom you know, or even suspect, were planning to attend the service on Wednesday morning. We ask the forgiveness of all for any inconvenience.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
20/2/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Just as man was first fashioned and then breathed into, thus praxis must precede theoria. Everything done by the body is called praxis, whereas everything done by the mind is called theoria. It is impossible to reach thoria without praxis. So struggle now in everything that praxis requires, and the more spiritual things will come by themselves.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
19/2/23, 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: III John 1:1-15 & Luke 19:29-40,22:7-39
Tuesday: Jude 1:1-10 & Luke 22:39-42,22:45-23:1
Wednesday: Joel 2:12-26 & Joel 3:12-21
Thursday: Jude 1:11-25 & Luke 23:1-34,44-56
Friday: Zechariah 8:7-17 & Zechariah 8:19-23
Saturday: Romans 14:19-26 & Matthew 6:1-13

: III . 1:1-15 19:29-40,22:7-39
: 1:1-10 22:39-42,22:45-23:1
: 2:12-26 3:12-21
: 4:20-5:21 23:1-34,44-56
: 8:7-17 8:19-23
: . 14:19-26 6:1-13

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

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirs + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
19/2/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Confession and Communion are the two sacraments we most often partake of as Orthodox Christians and thus it behooves us to learn about these, how to prepare for these, and how to best take advantage of the Grace that our Lord freely gives us in these sacraments. At St. Vladimirs we have created a special web site for this purpose with much information in this regard. Please find the web site listed below and please contact Fr. Gregory with questions!
