Confession & Communion at St. Vladimir’s + Rule to Prepare for Communion 
26/12/21, 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. Vladimir’s 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!

Congratulations to those Celebrating Nativity Today 
25/12/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We congratulate all our parish friends and family who are celebrating the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ today. Although we will not celebrate for 13 days as a parish we understand that most of our society is celebrating today - and whether you celebrate today or in 13 days it is still remarkable and noteworthy that more than 2000 years after the birth of the Savior the world still pauses to note His Incarnation on this day. May this be the year that the hymn of the angels heard all those centuries ago over Bethlehem be actualized in our world: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, goodwill and peace.”

Donations to St. Vladimir Church are deductible to the greatest extent allowable by law. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions in this regard.

Links to “St. John of Shanghai: Homecoming” Movie = Homework for THIS SUNDAY 
23/12/21, 06:00 AM
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. We’ll have time for questions and answers/discussion about the movie and Fr. Gregory’s presentation. Please plan to join us!

Beware Wolf in Sheep's Clothing 
22/12/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It has come to my attention that Deacon Methodius Chwastek, who at one time was a St. Vladimir's minor cleric (Subdeacon) and left our diocese without a blessing, then left the diocese he fled to without a blessing, then joined a schismatic Old Calendarist group, and then received false ordination by the false bishop of that group, has been attempting to interact with some of our parishioners.

First: we should pray intently for Deacon Methodius and his family, for they are in a very dangerous spiritual situation. Their souls are in danger. St. John Chrysostom equates schism with heresy, and notes that not even the blood of martyrdom washes away the sin of schism.

Second: in that Deacon Methodius has shown by his actions that he is in spiritual delusion we should neither seek his counsel nor pay any heed to it if he gives it.

Third: the diocesan Spiritual Court is presently dealing with Deacon Methodius' case and, baring repentance and return to the Church on his part, it is very likely that he will be defrocked as a Deacon (we do not in any way recognize his false priestly ordination, and thus there is no reason to even address that point) and be counted by the Church as a schismatic layman. It goes without saying that it is folly to seek or receive spiritual counsel from a layman who has left the Orthodox Church. Please contact me or Fr. Colin if you have questions, and again, please remember Deacon Methodius and his family in your prayers.
