Posted by Fr. Gregory

For various technical reasons we were unable to show the movie about St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco on Sunday, December 5. 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. Well have time for questions and answers/discussion about the movie and Fr. Gregorys presentation. Please plan to join us!

Spread the word! The St. Vladimirs Christmas Bake Sale is back! NOW IS THE TIME (the bake sale is this coming Saturday!) 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. And it is GREAT for our parish family to work together and be successful for such an event as this! So lets do that! Please contact Leta today, and ask how you can help. And tell everyone you know to come join us! A flyer can be found at this link:

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
15/12/21, 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)

We Need Prosphora Bakers 
14/12/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank God, we are able to serve quite often at our parish, which means we need a lot of prosphora. Having one or two more people undertaking this blessed task would make this easier on everyone already baking. If you would like to learn how to fulfill this blessed duty please contact Fr. Gregory. Your efforts will directly and positively effect our ability to serve the Divine Liturgy more often, which benefits our entire parish family!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
12/12/21, 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: I Timothy 1:1-7 & Luke 19:37-44
Tuesday: I Timothy 1:8-14 & Luke 19:45-48
Wednesday: I Timothy 1:18-20, 2:8-15 & Luke 20:1-8
Thursday: I Timothy 3:1-13 & Luke 20:9-18
Friday: I Timothy 4:4-8,16 & Luke 20:19-26
Saturday: Ephesians 1:16-23 & Luke 12:32-40

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