Deacon Ordination August 27 - Instructions for Parishioners 
5/7/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

God willing, Subdeacon Dmitri Mihaliov will be ordained a deacon on Saturday, August 27 for service at our St. Vladimir parish. Ordination is the sacrament of the Holy Church that we probably least often participate in, but it is important that we all participate in this ordination appropriately. We ask all our parishioners to review the ordination instructions here and to address questions to Fr. Gregory or Fr. Colin. Please remember - the Divine Liturgy begins at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 27.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
4/7/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Do not grieve that it has become difficult to live, do not despair, do not be troubled! It is impossible for a young person to cross the stormy sea of the passions without disturbances and the hourly fear of threatening destruction. But this is all temporary: the storm will subside, the glorious sun will begin to shine, and we will reach the cozy, quiet, and always green island. You must be patient!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
3/7/22, 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: Romans 9:18-33 & Matthew 11:2-15
Tuesday: Romans 10:11-11:2 & Matthew 11:16-20
Wednesday: Romans 11:2-12 & Matthew 11:20-26
Thursday: Romans 11:13-24 & Matthew 11:27-30
Friday: Romans 11:25-36 & Matthew 12:1-8
Saturday: Romans 6:11-17 & Matthew 8:14-23

: . 9:18-33 11:2-15
: . 10:11-11:2 11:16-20
: . 11:2-12 11:20-26
: . 11:13-24 11:27-30
: . 11:25-36 12:1-8
: . 6:11-17 8:14-23

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 
3/7/22, 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!
