Members Pick Your Duty 
11/11/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

At the annual meeting on Sunday, May 16 we explained that it is understood and expected that each member of our parish would have at least one duty that they participate in IN ADDITION to attending the Divine Services. This ranges from baking prosphora, to picking sticks in the cemetery, to shoveling snow, and more! If we all do our little part we will equitably care for the parish the Lord has entrusted to us, and we will not kill off those who do these things if no one else does. It is wise for us to preserve the leadership of our parish, but it is also moral for each parish member to do their part. So please pitch in, and if you have not chosen your duty yet please contact our new parish Secretary, Marina Edwards. If she doesnt hear from you she will reach out to you soon. You can email her at info@stvladimiraami.org or see her in church. Thank you diligently following through on this program. More involvement in the parish promotes persistence in being part of the parish family and it keeps a few people from doing everything. With Gods help we will make our metaphor of family even more real in our parish by working together for Gods glory in this way!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
10/11/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults on the upcoming Sunday's principle Gospel reading so that all can better prepare for the Divine Services. Parents are asked to review the childrens portion with their children. It is very important for us to attend the Divine Services on Sundays and whenever else we are able, but in addition it is our spiritual responsibility to educate ourselves and our families in the faith. It is our hope that this mid-week offering will be an aid in this regard. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or suggestions.

For Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

For Youth: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers

A man ought to want to be freed from vice not because he wants to escape its affliction, but because he detests it, according to Scripture [With perfected hatred have I hated them, they are reckoned enemies with me.] Psalm 138

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
7/11/21, 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 4:10-23 & Luke 10:22-24
Tuesday: Colossians 1:1-2, 7-11 & Luke 11:1-10
Wednesday: Colossians 1:18-23 & Luke 11:9-13
Thursday: Colossians 1:24-29 & Luke 11:14-23
Friday: Colossians 2:1-7 & Luke 11:23-26
Saturday: II Corinthians 3:12-18 & Luke 8:16-21

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