Repose of Connie (Elena) Meyer 
10/5/19, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


On May 9 at about 9:00 p.m. Moscow Time the handmaiden of God Connie (Elena) Meyer passed into the next life. Connie was our tireless partner in Moscow in our Russia with Love effort, having come to Moscow as the Soviet Union collapsed and staying for the rest of her life, working closely with the Russian Orthodox Church, especially our friend Fr. Sergey Kiselev. During this time she accepted Orthodox Christianity with the name Elena, and true to her names sake, worked tirelessly for the good of the people of God, helping all those in need who came to her, no matter the resources she had on hand (often next to nothing). Connie helped the poorest and most suffering in Moscow - especially during the 1990s when society was in a state of upheaval. Connie came to visit us here in Ann Arbor on several occasions. Here is a photo album of her visit in 2009:

Please remember Elena in your prayers during these days. Her 40th day is June 17. May the Lord grant her His Kingdom!

Graves in Forest Hill & Glacier Hills Need Help 
10/5/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The priest who led the St. Hilarion Mission in Ann Arbor (the Russian Mission that existed in the 1950-60s) is buried in Forest Hill cemetery. His grave stone and that of his wife Raisa have been vandalized. There is no family left. We need to do something about that. If you can help organize repair or replacement of the stones please see Fr. Gregory. Well need to raise money, organize the project, etc. But we need a leader. If you can lead, please see Fr. Gregory. We also have a grave in Glacier Hills that does not have a cross on it. That will be an easier problem to solve. Again please see Fr. Gregory if you can help.

St. John Brotherhood in the Kitchen this Sunday 
9/5/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Please join us for our annual meal on the Sunday of the Myrrh-Bearing Women (this Sunday, May 12) at which our St. John Brotherhood takes over the kitchen and all aspects of the parish meal, categorically refusing to allow any of our hard-working sisters to help in any way! This is always a great meal, and a great way for all of us to thank those that work so hard the other 50 weeks of the year (the Brotherhood does this on one of the Sundays around the feast of St. Xenia too this is our Sisterhoods patron saint). Please plan to join us!

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirs + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
7/5/19, 06:00 PM
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!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
6/5/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

There is no question about that which is bred in the womb, both growing, and moving from place to place. It remains, therefore, that we must think that the point of commencement of existence is one and the same for body and soul.

Proper Attire in Church 
1/5/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As the weather warms it is always a temptation to come to church dressed not quite appropriately. We provide the information below as a guide to help make good decisions about what to wear to church:

http://stvladimiraami.org/flyers/properattire.pdf

PARENTS: it is YOUR responsibility to assure that your child is dressed appropriately.

TWO ISSUES WE STRUGGLE WITH EVERY YEAR: no shorts and no uncovered shoulders - no matter the age.

ANOTHER ISSUE WE STRUGGLE WITH: we have skirts and shawls to share if needed. But these are not items to be used as weapons in the attack of a visitor, but to be offered lovingly if it is clear that someone feels out of place because they innocently came to church dressed inappropriately.

Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns.
