Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
29/5/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

He who seeks grace from the Lord must, above all, endure temptations and afflictions no matter how they come. Otherwise, if he becomes indignant and doesnt show enough patience during a temptation, neither will grace manifest itself, nor will his virtue be perfected or will he be counted worthy of any spiritual gift.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week  
28/5/23, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Acts 21:8-14 & John 14:27-15:7
Tuesday: Acts 21:26-32 & John 16:2-13
Wednesday: Acts 23:1-11 & John 16:15-23
Thursday: Acts 25:13-19 & John 16:23-33
Friday: Acts 27:1-44 & John 17:18-26
Saturday: Acts 28:1-31 & John 21:15-25

: . 21:8-14 14:27-15:7
: . 21:26-32 16:2-13
: . 23:1-11 16:15-23
: . 25:13-19 16:23-33
: . 27:1-44 17:18-26
: . 28:1-31 21:15-25

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

Confession & Communion at St. Vladimirs + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
28/5/23, 06:00 AM
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!

Memorial Day Divine Liturgy! 
27/5/23, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Monday marks the annual commemoration of St. Brendan the Navigator. What better way to start your day when you dont have to go to work? As you might know, Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day, and it was set aside to decorate, clean, and beautiful the graves of Civil War soldiers. That is, this day in American was always strongly associated with good works and prayer. And so what better way to start this day than with the Divine Liturgy? It is a rhetorical question of course there is NO BETTER WAY to start ANY DAY than with the Divine Liturgy! Join us!

Posted by Fr. Gregory

Young men, mature men, all men! Being a man in todays world is a challenge. Being a Christian man is an even greater challenge! Join us for a meal and fellowship at Fr. Gregorys on Sunday June 25 at 6:00 p.m. No agenda, except for our mature men to mentor our young men, and our young men to inspire our mature men. If we support each other the body of Christ is strengthened and everyone wins, including Christian women, who need strong Christian men (just as Christian men need strong Christian women).

Other set dates: July 16, August 13 (not at Fr. Gregorys), October 1.
