Peter Longan Deaconate Ordination 
18/4/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

St. Vladimir Family,

Christ is Risen!

I have just received word from Peter Longan that, God willing, he will be ordained a Deacon this Sunday at the Moscow Theological Academy Church at St. Sergius Holy Trinity Monastery. Let us thank God that another our of St. Vladimirs family will join the ranks of those that the Lord speaks of in this way:

Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. (Matthew 20:26-28)

Let us pray for our Brother Peter that the Lord will grant him many years of fruitful servant-ministry in His Vineyard the Holy Church! And let us pray for Elizabeth that the Lord will strengthen her for her own ministry that comes with being the wife of a clergyman! Let us keep them both closely in our prayers this week as they prepare themselves for Peters ordination this Sunday.

God-willing, later this year Peter, Elizabeth, and their child set to arrive this June will move to Ann Arbor to serve our St. Vladimir parish.

Indeed He is Risen!

Fr. Gregory

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
16/4/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Are you fighting against your passions? Fight, fight, and be good soldiers of Christ! Do not give in to evil and do not be carried away by the weakness of the flesh. During the time of temptation, flee to the Physician, crying out with the Holy Church, our mother: O God, number me with the thief, the harlot, and the publican (i.e., with the repentant), and save me!

Special Needs Ministry We Need You! 
12/4/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Inspired by the incredible work of Fr. Vladimir Klimzo in Russia, and with the understanding that here in American the vast majority (perhaps up to 80% according to some studies) of families with special needs children or adult children do not attend church ALTHOUGH THEY WOULD LIKE TO we intend to establish a Special Needs Ministry at St. Vladimirs. We need one or two more people in addition to our present team to move this important ministry forward. If you can help please contact Fr. Gregory or email info@stvladimiraami.org. Join us in providing a spiritual home for those seeking one, but struggling to connect with a parish family!

Weekly Educational Offering 
11/4/18, 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: an explanation of this coming Sunday's Gospel reading from Blessed Theophylact:
