Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
28/12/22, 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.

End of Year Donations for Tax Purposes - LAST WEEK TO ACT! 
27/12/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Dear St. Vladimirs Parishioners! We would like to urge you to consider whether making a donation to the parish before December 31, 2022 would be helpful for you as you consider your tax liability for the year 2022. 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. It is also very important that your address be up to date in our parish database. If you have moved this year please contact our parish Secretary, Marina Edwards (info@stvladimiraami.org), with your new address.

Let's Finish the Year Strong! 
27/12/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As we approach the end of the year 2022 we have much to be thankful for as a parish family. We urge you to take some time during these last weeks of the year to thank God for His mercy upon our growing parish family. We would also like to ask you to reflect on your financial situation and consider whether you could make an end of year gift to our parish.

As the economy has struggled this year so too has our parish. Our expenses have remained essentially unchanged, yet we are poised to end the year in a deficit because recurring donations have decreased as the economy has worsened. On one hand that is completely understandable. People are nervous about the economy and need to cut their own expenses. On the other hand, we need to communicate to you the reality of the situation and ask your support of the parish that is here to serve you and your family.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
26/12/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

...suppress anger with all your might every time it is aroused, and you will find it weaker the next time. Continually strike at it and cut off its head whenever you see it rising. Then composure, the fruit of forbearance, will soon blossom. Thenceforth you will have peace and grace, and all good things will follow.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
25/12/22, 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: Hebrews 3:5-11, 17-19 & Mark 8:11-21
Tuesday: Hebrews 4:1-13 & Mark 8:22-26
Wednesday: Hebrews 5:11-6:8 & Mark 8:30-34
Thursday: Hebrews 7:1-6 & Mark 9:10-16
Friday: Hebrews 7:18-25 & Mark 9:33-41
Saturday: Galatians 3:8-12 & Luke 13:18-29

: . 3:5-11, 17-19 8:11-21
: . 4:1-13 8:22-26
: . 5:11-6:8 8:30-34
: . 7:1-6 9:10-16
: . 7:18-25 9:33-41
: . 3:8-12 13:18-29
