Links to “St. John of Shanghai: Homecoming” Movie = Homework for 12/26/21 
9/12/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

For various technical reasons we were unable to show the movie about St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco yesterday. So we are sharing the links here and asking you to watch the movie before Sunday, December 26. On that day Fr. Gregory will give a presentation on his trip to Ukraine to participate in the events described in the documentary and share pictures from his trip. We’ll have time for questions and answers/discussion about the movie and Fr. Gregory’s presentation. Please plan to join us!

Special Presentation & Update on A2OCA December 12 
9/12/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Sunday, December 12 marks the feast of St. Mardarije of Libertyville and Ann Arbor. THIS IS OUR ANN ARBOR SAINT! How many other cities in Michigan have their own saint? As of now that number is ZERO. We have a great blessing here, and a great responsibility! Let us begin by being present at the Divine Services for St. Mardarije, and to prepare for and partake of the Holy Mysteries this day!

St. Mardarije is the patron saint of our own Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy. On this day we will have the new icon of St. Mardarije available for veneration. This is an icon painted by Protodeacon Paul Drozdowski of St. Mardarije in an academic setting, which is completely appropriate given his life and work. But this will be the first icon in the world with St. Mardarije in this context. Fr. Colin will give a presentation about the life of St. Mardarije this day, and the A2OCA School Board will give a presentation on the school progress and plans going forward. Please plan to join us!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
8/12/21, 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 children’s 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)

Save the date! And spread the word! The St. Vladimir’s 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 let’s 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:

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
5/12/21, 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: II Thessalonians 1:1-10 & Luke 17:20-25
Tuesday: II Thessalonians 1:10-2:2 & Luke 17:26-37
Wednesday: II Thessalonians 2:1-12 & Luke 18:15-17,26-30
Thursday: II Thessalonians 2:13-3:5 & Luke 18:31-34
Friday: II Thessalonians 3:6-18 & Luke 19:12-28
Saturday: Galatians 1:3-10 & Luke 10:19-21

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