Church School Pilgrimage to Dormition Monastery 
2/11/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

On Saturday, October 30, our parish Church School conducted a pilgrimage to Dormition Convent in Rives Junction, MI. Before the pandemic began we visited the monastery several times per year, but this is our first trip back since the pandemic began. The young people participated in the Divine Liturgy in the morning, then after a light meal began their obediences. After work there was a snack and a long discussion with Abbess Gabriela that lasted right until Vigil began. Thank you to all who make this pilgrimage possible!

If you have not registered your child for Church School yet it is not too late! Visit the link below to register now:

No evil! Not even for a joke! A man may do something for a joke, but in the end he is trapped in it against his will.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
31/10/21, 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: Philippians 2:12-16 & Luke 9:18-22
Tuesday: Philippians 2:16-23 & Luke 9:23-27
Wednesday: Philippians 2:24-30 & Luke 9:44-50
Thursday: Philippians 3:1-8 & Luke 9:49-56
Friday: Philippians 3:8-19 & Luke 1-:1-15
Saturday: II Corinthians 1:8-11 & Luke 7:1-10

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 
31/10/21, 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!
