Spevka for All! 
13/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

There are several prayers that we sing together at St. Vladimir's. We want you to know this so that you can practice. :) And as we come out of the pandemic it is the perfect time to practice MORE! That way we will sing these with zeal - with power! WE SHOULD BE LIFTING THE ROOF WHEN WE SING THESE - THEY SHOULD BE SUNG VERY STRONGLY - ESPECIALLY THE CREED AND "HAVING BEHELD THE RESURRECTION..."

Saturday Vigil (and matins during Pentecost) - "Having Beheld the Resurrection of Christ":

THIS SATURDAY & SUNDAY: Kursk Root Icon to Visit St. Vladimirs 
12/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

God willing the Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God will visit our St. Vladimir parish on Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16. As is our parish tradition, we hope to keep the church open all night from Saturday to Sunday to allow people to venerate the icon from around our region. This provides a wonderful opportunity for our parish family members to spend time with the icon in the church in a quiet, prayerful atmosphere. But in order to provide this service to our parish family, friends, and neighbors we need volunteers to be with the icon at all times. The sign up for this duty can be found here:

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday!  
12/5/21, 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)

Annual Meeting is May 16 Membership Drive on Now! 
11/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please join us for our annual parish meeting on May 3/16, 2021. God willing, the Kursk Icon will be present for the annual meeting. That is a first for our parish, and likely will never happen again. We need to see that as a blessing, and perhaps even a message. The Lord has blessed us greatly during the pandemic. The Parish Council is very interested in finding the silver lining of the cloud that is the pandemic. To find out what that means (and it means something very significant for our parish) join us at the meeting!

Our parish practice is to serve one cycle of Divine Services per month (Friday Evening Services and Saturday Divine Liturgy) completely in English. This is a missionary effort designed to allow those who are interested in Orthodox Christianity to more easily access the beauty of the Divine Services the theology in action of the Holy Church. ALL ARE WELCOME at these services! Please invite friends and loved ones! Let us work together to no longer allow Orthodox Christianity to be the best kept secret in the spiritual life of North America! Please join us! Evening Services begin at 6:00 p.m. this Friday with Divine Liturgy at 8:00 a.m. this Saturday.

Visiting Graves on Radonitsa 
10/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As is our usual practice we planned to visit the graves of our friends and loved ones on Thomas Sunday (May 9) to greet them with the Resurrection of the Lord. But the weather was terrible. So we will visit on Radonitsa (May 11). First we will serve Liturgy that day at 8:00 a.m. We will then go to the graves in our parish cemetery. We should arrive at Forest Hill Cemetery about 10:30 a.m. For the graves of those we cannot visit on Radonitsa (May 11) please contact Fr. Gregory to arrange a visit.
