Monday First Things: Teaching of the Holy Fathers 
2/3/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


“Courage means going against the current. As you know, only dead fish flow freely wherever the river flows, while living fish swim upstream to the pure spring and the pristine environment. Only those who have been able to summon up some measure of humility are capable of true courage.”

Metroplitan Onuphry of Kiev & All Ukraine

Great Lent has Begun 
1/3/20, 11:59 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We congratulate all our parish family on the beginning of the Holy and Great Lent! This is a special time of year for all of us when we put away the cares of this world to the greatest extent possible and in a much more focused way examine our consciences, forgive each other, and seek forgiveness from our merciful Lord. Yesterday the Holy Church commemorated the casting out of Adam from Paradise. In today's Divine Services the first scripture reading is the beginning of Genesis – today is a new beginning for us all. May God grant us all a spiritually fruitful lent as we prepare ourselves for the feast of feasts – the Glorious Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Please find here the prayer of St. Ephraim. This prayer is said at every weekday Divine Service of Great Lent and it is common practice to include this prayer in our daily home prayers as well:

You Are a Missionary 
29/2/20, 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. Vladimir’s. 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. Let’s do that. Let’s 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. Vladimir’s!

For many years now we have gathered our young people, and the young at heart, on Forgiveness Sunday to go ice skating and have one last ice cream before we enter into our Spiritual Spring: Great Lent. Here is the requisite flyer – please join us!

ICE CREAM ICE SKATE FLYER


YOUNG ADULTS! Please note that our dinner on Sunday will start at 7:00 p.m. - not at 6:00 p.m. as usual. Whether you are able to join us for ice cream and ice skating or not, please join us for our monthly dinner. As always, we’ll enjoy our last pizza together before Pascha, and probably some ice cream will make an appearance too. :) Sign up and more information here:

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
26/2/20, 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 children’s 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)

Annual Meeting Thank You! 
25/2/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Thank you to all who made yesterday’s annual parish assembly such a huge success! The tenor of the meeting was very positive and there were some great conversations about what we were able to do last year and what we hope to do this year as a parish family! Thank you to all who served in parish offices last year. This year’s parish office holders are:

Starosta: Jack (Alexey) Mitchell – Term Runs through 2022
Treasurer: Mikhail Fisenkov
Secretary: Lauren (Maria) Rogers
Parish Council Trustees: Marina Edwards, Dmitri Knysh*, Igor Obertas, Natalia Veniaminova
Auditing Committee: Deacon Vladimir Pyrozhenko*, Subdeacon Colin Bower, Michael Marsh
Editing Committee: Subdeacon Colin Bower & Zhanna Skalitzky

I look forward to working closely with all these outstanding volunteers for the good of our parish family!

Fr. Gregory

*Dmitri and Deacon Vladimir could not join us for the annual meeting, but with Archbishop Peter’s blessing they will continue in this position until we can hold a special meeting to elect them properly. Likely this meeting will take place after Pascha.
