Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
1/12/21, 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)

Annual Bake Sale is December 18! 
30/11/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Save the date! And spread the word! The St. Vladimirs Christmas Bake Sale is back! More information to come soon, but now is the time to reach out to our Head Sister, Leta Nikulshina, and ask her what she needs you to bake. This can be a great fund raiser and a great outreach to our local community if we all pitch in and make it just that. So lets do that! Please contact Leta today, or when you see her in church, and ask how you can help. And tell everyone you know to come join us! A flyer can be found at this link:

Where is the #GivingTuesday Email from our Parish? 
30/11/21, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Today, no doubt, you have been virtually attacked by emails from various nonprofits asking for support. You may be wondering where the email is from our own St. Vladimir parish. The short answer is: there will not be one. Why? We know that you know that it is part of our spiritual struggle to tithe to support our parish. That being said, those that are in a position to make a donation to another worthwhile charity beyond their tithe may want some advice, and we do have a few favorites that we would like to recommend to you if you are in this position. Please consider supporting one of the following in addition to supporting your parish. We thank you for your support today and all throughout the year!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers

I know of no falling away of a monk which did not come from his reliance on his own sentiments. Nothing is more pitiful, nothing more disastrous than to be ones own [spiritual] director.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
28/11/21, 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: I Thessalonians 2:20-3:8 & Luke 14:12-15
Tuesday: I Thessalonians 3:9-13 & Luke 14:25-35
Wednesday: I Thessalonians 4:1-12 & Luke 15:1-10
Thursday: I Thessalonians 5:1-8 & Luke 16:1-9
Friday: I Thessalonians 5:9-13, 24-28 & Luke 16:15-18, 17:1-4
Saturday: II Corinthians 11:1-6 & Luke 9:57-6:2

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 
28/11/21, 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!
