Old Pictures, Videos, and Recordings from St. Vladimir's 
19/3/15, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Do you have old pictures, videos, or even audio recordings that have something to do with St. Vladimir's? Visits of bishops from past years, big holidays, or just about anything else? You may not think these are all that important - but they are! We do not want to lose touch with our past - it is very rich - it has made us who we are today! Please contact Fr. Gregory or Yuliya Rodzianko if you have pictures, videos, or recordings to share. We will copy what you have an return the originals to you very quickly. And the whole parish family will be richer for having the opportunity to share in our parish family's history. We thank you in advance for your willingness to share!

Small Schedule Change for March 26 
19/3/15, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Please note that the services that lead up to the Presanctified Liturgy on March 26 will begin at 5:00 p.m. rather than the usual 3:00 p.m. This is because the Matins connected with the preparation for this Presanctified Liturgy will be held the evening before at 6:00 p.m. This is the well-known Standing of St. Andrew at which the life of St. Mary of Egypt as well as the full penitential canon of St. Andrew of Crete are read. Please join us!

Parents: Help Keep the Church Clean! 
14/3/15, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
We ask parents to please keep an eye on their children during the Divine Services as regards playing with the sand in the candle stands and with candles. Those that work hard to clean the church every week have to work even harder because of the sand all over the floor and all over the pannykhhida table, as well as lots of drips of wax on the floor. We love kids and we always will! But we ask that parents exercise some oversight in this regard. Thank you!

The schedule of services was very intense this last week. From last Friday to this Friday we served six Divine Liturgies at St. Vladimir's. That is not something to be proud of, but something to be thankful for. Thank you to all those who labored so diligently to make this happen for our parish family! If you missed those Liturgies do not despair! God-willing we have Liturgy this Saturday and Sunday too! Please join us!

We have excellent Lenten recipes to share if youd like to try something new! Please join us for these remarkably beautiful and meaningful Lenten evening services and for mid-week fellowship with your parish family at the meal afterwards!

Wednesday, March 11
Wednesday, March 18
Thursday, March 26 NOTE THIS IS A THURSDAY

The Liturgical Fast for those communing begins after breakfast for the 6:30 p.m. services. In other words, you may eat breakfast, but eat or drink nothing further after that. Parents should use their best judgment regarding their children, as always. Those who confessed on the weekend prior to the Wednesday Presanctified need not confess again on/before Wednesday.

PLEASE NOTE! There are MANY other Presanctified Liturgies throughout Great Lent that begin with Matins at 8:00 a.m. and Liturgy about 11:30 a.m. - mostly on Fridays. Please consult the schedule of services on our web site for more details.
