10% of Festival Proceeds go to Charity 
25/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We ask each of our parishioners to make a tithe to the parish.

Some thoughts on tithing from an Orthodox point of view can be found here and may be helpful:

https://blogs.ancientfaith.com/roadsfromemmaus/2015/10/27/6-reasons-why-tithing-is-good-for-an-orthodox-parish/

You can find more in this article, which is on our parish web site:

It only makes sense if we ask our parishioners to tithe that we would arrange for 10% of our festival proceeds would go to charities other than St. Vladimir's (10% of our regular collections go to the diocese by the way). So - when you volunteer for the festival we want you to know that you are supporting St. Vladimir's - but other charitable organizations as well!

IOCC School Kits in August Compiling Kits THIS SATURDAY 
23/8/18, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

According to our long-standing tradition at St. Vladimirs we will gather to prepare School Kits for International Orthodox Christian Charities in August. On Sunday, August 19 we will have a special collection to support the purchase of the school supplies to be used to create the kits. On Saturday, August 25, we will compile the kits following the Divine Liturgy. PARENTS: please be sure to attend the Liturgy on August 25 (begins at 9:00 a.m.) so your children can participate in compiling the kits. These kits are sent to those in need in countries that mandate that children bring their own supplies to school or they cannot attend. Our small contribution makes it possible for children in these countries to be educated. If you would like to make a donation, but you cannot be at Liturgy on August 19, please contact our parish Treasurer, Mikhail Fisenkov at treasurer@stvladimiraami.org. Thank you for supporting this worthy project!

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
20/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Better a stupid and unlettered brother who, working the good things he knows, merits life in Heaven than one who though being distinguished for his learning in the Scriptures, or even holding the place of a doctor, lacks the bread of love.

Emergency Cards Available 
18/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The diocese has provided each of our parishes with Emergency Cards. These cards are to be filled out and put in your wallet so that if it were ever to happen that you were in an accident or otherwise needed spiritual support, but could not speak for yourself, the authorities would find the card in your wallet and call Fr. Gregory to come to you. We hope none of our parishioners ever needs to use one of these cards, but it is a good idea to have one just in case. Please see Fr. Gregory if you have questions. Emergency cards can be found near the front doors - near the pamphlets that are available to all for free.

Most of us attend Liturgy regularly on Sundays, but rarely other days. Still, it is good to know when we make prostrations on weekdays, and this is why we have put together this handout. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions. See the handout in PDF format here:
