Sunday Liturgy begins at 9:00 a.m. NEW INFORMATION 
6/7/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Until further notice Divine Liturgy on Sunday begins at 9:00 a.m. Set up for the Divine Liturgy begins at 8:00 a.m. Please come to help if you can! All parish calendars have been updated to reflect the new start time. Please pass the word to those who you know or suspect will not see this announcement.

Please note: although the disease is much less likely to spread outside, it is still important to physically distance. It is understood: everyone is tired of pandemic restrictions! But the point of worshiping outside is not just because we can essentially welcome as many people as would like to attend, but also to lower the opportunity for the virus to spread. Please be conscious of physical distancing and please kindly and lovingly remind others who forget this. No one wants to spread the virus – but it is easy to forget to physically distance.

Parents please note: you must supervise your children during the outside services! Children are not allowed to play in the neighbors’ yards during the service. If we are not diligent about this our neighbors will start to dislike us, and that is not good for anyone. Thank you for seeing to this.

It was very warm under the tents yesterday. We are examining how we can aleviate that going forward. Please provide us other feedback so that we can do this better by emailing info@stvladimiraami.org visiting this feedback form:

“Be a herald of God’s goodness, for God rules over you, unworthy though you are; for although your debt to Him is so great, yet He is not seen exacting payment from you, and from the small works you do, He bestows great rewards upon you.”

Lampadas above the Royal Doors - Please be Attentive 
27/6/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We ask all to be attentive to the system we have devised to help folks know when they can and when they cannot move about during the Divine Services to light candles, etc. Even as we ask all to be attentive we also ask all to be loving, and if someone clearly is not aware that we have reached a time in the Divine Service when we should be still that we share that information with them lovingly and in a way that will not cause embarrassment. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns.

Subdeacon Colin Bower Ordination + Services Daily Week of 6/29/20 
22/6/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Most will remember that our Colin Bower was to have been ordained a deacon when Archbishop Peter was to have visited during Great Lent. Due to the quarantine that visit was canceled. Vladyka has decided to ordain Colin on Sunday, June 28, at the Diocesan Cathedral of the Protection of the Mother of God in Des Plaines (Chicago), IL. This is because Pastoral School final exams and thesis defense are slated for June 27, and Colin is participating in the exams and thesis defense in any case.

This is a great blessing for our parish for which we should be very thankful! It is important for us and the future of our parish that those who are able are educated and ordained for service to the community. Please remember Colin, Kaity, and Macrina in your prayers. Our plan is, according to our usual practice, to serve evening services and Divine Liturgy daily the week of June 29. You can sign up for services for that week at the link below:

Monday First Things: Teaching of the Holy Fathers 
22/6/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


“In proportion to your humility you are given patience in your woes; and in proportion to your patience the burden of your afflictions is made lighter and you will find consolation; in proportion to your consolation, your love of God increases; and in proportion to your love, your joy in the Holy Spirit is magnified. Once men have truly become His sons, our tenderly compassionate Father does not take away their temptations from them when it is His pleasure to ‘make for them a way to escape’ (1 Cor. 10:13), but instead He gives His sons patience in their trials. All these good things are given into the hand of their patience for the perfecting of their souls.”
