Nativity Lent Begins Today

Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please note that the yearly Lenten period in preparation for our Lords Nativity begins on November 28. From this day until January 7 we do not partake of meat or dairy products. On many days during this lent fish is allowed. Please consult the parish schedule of services for details in this regard. Have questions about fasting? Never tried to follow the fast before? Please talk to Fr. Gregory or Fr. Colin for answers! We abstain from meats that we might abstain from the passions... writes St. John Chrysostom. Let us indeed use the fast for what it is a tool to aid us in our spiritual struggle for salvation!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
28/11/22, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Only reproaches and insults benefit a man spiritually, because they give birth to humility. He gains crowns, and by enduring, he crushes his egotism and vainglory. Therefore, when they insult you, You arrogant egotist, you impatient hypocrite, etc., it is a time for patience. If you respond, you lose.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
27/11/22, 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: II Thessalonians 1:1-10 & Luke 14:12-15
Tuesday: II Thessalonians 1:10-2:2 & Luke 14:25-35
Wednesday: II Thessalonians 2:1-12 & Luke 15:1-10
Thursday: II Thessalonians 2:13-3:5 & Luke 16:1-9
Friday: II Thessalonians 3:6-18 & Luke 16:15-18, 17:1-4
Saturday: Galatians 1:3-10 & Luke 9:57-62

: II . 1:1-10 14:12-15
: II . 1:10-2:2 14:25-35
: II . 2:1-12 15:1-10
: II . 2:13-3:5 16:1-9
: II . 3:6-18 16:15-18, 17:1-4
: . 1:3-10 9:57-62

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 
27/11/22, 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!
