Ball & Yolka Thank You! 
16/1/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to all who made our Nativity Ball and our Yolka so wonderful this last weekend! The ball raised close to $2,000 for the Davydovo Camp for Special Needs Children (we can present this to Fr. Vladimir Klimzo in person he will visit us later this month!) and it was a ton of fun! And the Yolka was simply amazing the kids had such a good time (and the adults did too if we are all honest about this), and Father Frost and Snegurichka made their annual appearance including gifts for all the children! Thank you to all who made all this possible! This is a lot of work a LOT of work. And I think many of us who do not have the opportunity to participate in planning such events dont really understand the hours and hours of preparation that go into these things. BUT DO NOT DESPAIR we have a great opportunity for you! We are looking for helpers for next years Nativity Ball and now is your chance to volunteer! Please email info@stvladimiraami.org if you are interested or to learn more. Email today. Right now. This instant. Do not wait!

Thank you again to all who work so hard to support our Divine Services, extracurricular activities, and everything we do at St. Vladimirs!

Church School begins January 20 
15/1/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

St. Vladimirs Church School begins January 20!. Classes will be held every Saturday afternoon at 5:00 p.m. through May 19 with the exception of April 7. We have condensed the classes to the greatest extent possible for the convenience of our busy families we value your time. Please do us the favor of valuing the time of the teachers and other volunteers who make our Church School possible by being on time.

All children are urged to participate in the Vigil following Church School and in the Sunday (and other feast day) Divine Liturgies to the greatest extent possible by ringing bells, serving in the altar, singing, helping in the kiosk, and most importantly by being present in the church and praying with their parish family, AND ESPECIALLY by partaking of the Holy Mysteries. The Liturgy is not a spectacle or event that we watch, but a prayerful work of the people that we participate in through our prayerful involvement. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions in this regard.

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
15/1/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Why is it hard to believe that Mary gave birth in a way contrary to the law of natural birth and remained a virgin, when contrary to the law of nature the sea looked at Him and fled, and the waters of the Jordan returned to their source (Ps. 113:3). Is it past belief that a virgin gave birth when we read that a rock issued water (Ex. 17:6), and the waves of the sea were made solid as a wall (Ex. 14:22)? Is it past belief that a Man came from a virgin when a rock bubbled forth a flowing stream (Ex. 20:11), iron floated on water (4 Kings 6:6), a Man walked upon the waters (Mt. 14:26)? If the waters bore a Man, could not a virgin give birth to a man? What Man? Him of Whom we read: the Lord shall be known to the Egyptians, and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in that day; and they shall offer sacrifices, and shall vow vows to the Lord, and pay them (Is. 19:20).

In the Old Testament a Hebrew virgin (Miriam) led an army through the sea (Ex. 15:21); in the New testament a kings daughter (the Virgin Mary) was chosen to be the heavenly entrance to salvation.

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
8/1/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

But nothing causes such exceeding grief as when anyone, lying under the captivity of sin, calls to mind from where he has fallen, because he turned aside to carnal and earthly things, instead of directing his mind in the beautiful ways of the knowledge of God. So you find Adam concealing himself, when he knew that God was present and wishing to be hidden when called by God with that voice which wounded the soul of him yourself? Why are you concealed? Why do you avoid Him Whom you once longed to see? A guilty conscience is so burdensome that it punishes itself without a judge, and wishes for covering, and yet is bare before God.
