St. Demetrius is this Thursday + Expanding Worship Space 
6/11/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

When we expanded the parish church in 2006 Bishop Peter gave us a choice of relics that we could place in the foundation. In the end we settled on Great Martyr Demtrius. Vladyka explained that whichever saints we chose we would need to serve the Divine Services for that saint annually. The commemoration of Great Martyr Demetrius falls on November 8 each year, and November 8 this year is this coming Thursday. Please join us as your personal schedule allows!


Speaking of Expanding our Worship Space

We are packed into our present worship space. The parish council has been discussing this at length and how we can get the new church project started as soon as possible. More on that is coming soon and we think it is important that you understand that we are concerned about this and about how we move forward. We will move forward! Not in 10 years. Not in 5. Hopefully in 1 year. Maybe in 2. We will discuss this at the annual meeting on March 19 in some detail and hope to have an actionable plan fully in place by the end of that meeting. In the mean time, you can help. A lot. By moving forward. Physically. Closer to the front of the worship space. Often we are packed right to the back doors on Sunday but sometimes there is 10 feet of open space in the front. We appreciate that the parable of the Publican and the Pharisee has made such an impression our parishioners (read here if this reference isnt clear to you). But we need you to move forward. You. The people who read this email. Not someone else. PEOPLE ARE LEAVING ON SUNDAY BECAUSE THERE IS NO SPACE FOR THEM TO STAND. But there is room. But we cant expect those who are visiting to stand in the front. If they did that we would probably even judge them for being a little pretentious. So those of us who are regular parishioners need to push themselves (figuratively and literally) to get to the front of the church. Please. Otherwise people will show up, not be able to physically get into the worship space and leave. It happens every Sunday. LETS MAKE SURE THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!

Sometimes folks step right up and help when we ask. Sometime not so much. :) But this announcement is not one that we can ignore. We can't expect just a few people to do everything at the parish - everyone needs to pitch in and help here and there. And there is a subset of people that like to do things like event planning. We are looking for one or two of you who like to do that to step up!


Nativity Ball Planning Time we Need a Committee Chair

This year marks the 20th anniversary of our Nativity Ball! Our Head Sister, Leta Nikulshina, has been chair of the Ball Committee for 10 years! And she just cant do it this year. We need someone to step up and lead. Yes you! Not someone else you! Leta will not disappear she will be there to help. In the early years of the ball it was common for someone to lead the committee for year or two and then hand it off to a new chair. Wed like to get back to that cadence. Grab a friend or two and join us it will be fun! Email info@stvladimiraami.org to volunteer today!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
5/11/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Do not imagine this a victory, holy Sopatros, to have denounced [Tit. 3:9] a devotion, or an opinion, which apparently is not good. For neithereven if you should have convicted it accuratelyare the (teachings) of Sopatros consequently good. For it is possible, both that you and others, whilst occupied in many things that are false and apparent, should overlook the true, which is One and hidden. For neither, if anything is not red, is it therefore white, nor if something is not a horse, is it necessarily a man. But thus will you do, if you follow my advice, you will cease indeed to speak against others, but will so speak on behalf of truth, that every thing said is altogether unquestionable.

Death in a Place of Worship 
29/10/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

On Saturday 11 people were killed and many were injured when the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh was attacked in what is being reported as a hate crime. It is important for us, as people of faith, to speak out clearly and unequivocally in such situations. There is a time and a place for theological disputes. This is not that time. This is not that place. This is the time and place to say without any hesitation: violence in a place of worship is NEVER acceptable. Never. Full stop.
