Spring and Summer Brings Missionaries to our Doors - Share the Orthodox Faith 
26/5/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As the weather improves missionaries from various religions tend to appear at our homes. At St. Vladimir's we have many pamphlets and booklets on the Orthodox Faith that are free for anyone to take. These can be found at the back of the church near the main entrance doors. Please feel free to take information home with you to share with the missionaries that come to visit you. It seems only fair that if they want us to take their information that we offer them information about Orthodox Christianity. Many missionaries have found the Orthodox Church in this way. No one is mandated to do this, but if you would like to you are welcome to. Please feel free to contact Fr. Gregory with questions in this regard.

Preparing the Parish Church for Pentecost 
23/5/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The great feast of Pentecost is May 27. Please join us on Saturday, May 26 for a Memorial Divine Liturgy beginning at 9:00 a.m. Following the Liturgy we will decorate the parish church with boughs, branches, and flowers for the Pentecost vigil. This is a similar activity to our Lazarus Saturday church decoration in preparation for the Palm Sunday vigil. Many good memories are waiting to be had at these sorts of events. Please bring your children! It is especially important for them to participate in these sorts of activities. All are welcome!

Small but Important Points from Hierarchal Visit 
23/5/18, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

During his archpastoral visit Vladyka asked Fr. Gregory to remind our parishioners that before receiving a blessing from a bishop they should make a small bow from the waist. This is minor on one hand, but the fact that Vladyka cares enough to point out this minor issue should show us his love for us as well as his trust in us. He sees us as a parish that will in the future receive hierarchal visitors from outside the diocese and wants us to be ready to welcome those visitors appropriately. We do not interact with bishops on a regular basis, and so such things can be easy to forget. We will remind you again before the visit of Metropolitan Jonah this July to celebrate St. Vladimirs Day.

Vladyka also noted that starting this Sunday prosphora will only be available from the kiosk at the end of the Divine Liturgy and not before: after all have kissed the cross and after the Royal Doors have been closed. Please make a note of this and prepare your children for this change as they are likely to be effected by it more than adults.

Archbishop Peter Thank You! 
21/5/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to all who made the visit of Archbishop Peter to our parish this weekend such a success! His Eminence joined us for Vigil on Saturday evening and Liturgy on Sunday morning. At the Liturgy on Sunday morning Mark Chaffee and Colin Bower were tonsured Readers for serve in our St. Vladimir Parish. Subdeacon Dmitry Kashchenko was ordained a Deacon to serve in our parish and Deacon Thomas Sprunger was ordained a priest to serve at the parish in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This was the first ordination of a priest in the history of our St. Vladimirs parish! So many people worked hard to make Vladykas visit so fruitful and we thank you all: those who sang, those who served, those who cooked, and everyone else who worked quietly behind the scenes for the glory of God! This was a real triumph for our parish thank you all! Many pictures are already up on our Facebook page. Eventually all will be posted on our photo album as well.
