Construction continues! Can you spare $10? 
26/1/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Construction on our parish day school, the Ann Arbor Orthodox Christian Academy, continues this week. The walls are going up! Soon the roof will be there too. The Lord has blessed us to get this far, and we are thankful all your support! But now it is time to strengthen our foundation of support. You cant build a building without a strong foundation. That is true physically (we are using cement for the school, so that part is done), and that is true financially. As of 1/25/21 we have $935 in monthly recurring donations supporting the school. This is great! This is the beginning of a good foundation thank God! And it is going up every week! Our monthly mortgage payment on the school will be about $1500 and we need to get our recurring donations to this point ASAP. Thats 57 more people at $10 per month. If every adult member of our parish (about 150 folks) can donate $10 per month we are more than done! This is a parish-wide project lets all join in and make it happen as a parish family! The school is the jumping off point to the new church help us build this step to get quickly to the next!

Every member of our Board of Directors has established a monthly recurring donation, as have many of our parishioners and some folks from outside the parish. JOIN US! $10/month. $120/year. Just about $2/week. Visit this link to establish your monthly donation and assure that Orthodox education in Michigan has a firm foundation:

HELP BUILD OUR PARISH SCHOOL!

Thank God, with Fr. Joseph joining us we are able to have additional Divine Services at St. Vladimirs, but that means that we have demand for more prosphora. That is, we need more prosphora bakers! If you would like to learn how to fulfill this blessed duty please contact Fr. Gregory. Your efforts will directly and positively effect our ability to serve the Divine Liturgy more often, which benefits our entire parish family!

An evident sinner will turn towards good more easily than a secret sinner, hiding under the cloak of visible virtues.

Fr. Gregory: so embrace the fact that we are all sinners and turn towards good TODAY!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
24/1/21, 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: Hebrews 8:7-13 & Mark 8:11-21
Tuesday: Hebrews 9:8-10,15-23 & Mark 8:22-26
Wednesday: Hebrews 10:1-18 & Mark 8:30-34
Thursday: Hebrews 10:35-11:7 & Mark 9:10-16
Friday: Hebrews 11:8,11-16 & Mark 9:33-41
Saturday: Ephesians 5:1-8 & Luke 14:1-11

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