Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
22/12/21, 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)

New Icon Given - Another Ordered 
21/12/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank God, we have received a beautiful gift for our parish a full size copy of the Pochaev Icon of the Mother of God. We will place this icon in a prominent place above the icon of St. John of Shanghai & San Francisco. But we will need an icon to go above St. Xenia too otherwise the balance of the iconography will be quite out of sorts. The perfect icon to bring us back to symmetry would be an icon of St. Job of Pochaev of the same size. THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE GIVEN WE HAVE COLLECTED MORE THAN 50% OF THE COST OF THE ICON! We have therefore ordered the icon but we need to finish collecting the second half of the cost of the icon so we can pay the iconographer when he finishes in a few weeks. :)


We have decided to crowd fund this so everyone can add their part and pay for the icon of St. Job together as a parish family. Please make a donation today and if we all do this together well get this paid for very quickly! -Fr. Gregory

Members Pick Your Duty 
21/12/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

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 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!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
19/12/21, 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 5:1-10 & Luke 20:27-44
Tuesday: I Timothy 5:11-21 & Luke 21:12-19
Wednesday: I Timothy 5:22-6:11 & Luke 21:5-7, 10-11, 20-24
Thursday: I Timothy 6:17-21 & Luke 21:28-33
Friday: II Timothy 1:1-2,8-18 & Luke 21:37-22:8
Saturday: Galatians 5:22-6:2 & Luke 14:1-10

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 
19/12/21, 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!
