Time to Sign up for Lawn Care Duties 
20/6/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Our parish grass is growing again! And it is growning with zeal! It is important that we present a good first impression to those that come to God's House, and a well-kept lawn is a key part of this imperitive. Please sign up below for one or two weeks for this grass cutting season. If we all pitch in the grass will look great, and we'll also have time to take care of our other warm weather duties at our own homes!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
19/6/19, 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 Children: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Please join us for a series of spiritual discussion this fall on Wednesday evenings following the weekly akathist for the ill. The topic of the discussions will be the Divine Services.

There will be a little homework, but not much we promise. More soon to come, but please keep your Wednesday evenings free if you can beginning with the first Wednesday of October!

Pentecost Thank You 
17/6/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Thank you to all who worked so hard to make our Pentecost just wonderful at St. Vladimirs this year. With Gods help and our efforts we were able to serve three liturgical cycles over the course of four days. The church was decorated beautifully. The choir sang magnificently. The food was plentiful and delicious. And that is just what our eyes saw and our ears heard. There were many more who worked diligently for the glory of God behind the scenes. To all we say: THANK YOU! And congratulations with the feast!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
16/6/19, 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: Ephesians 5:9-19 & Matthew 18:10-20
Tuesday: Romans 1:1-7,13-17 & Matthew 4:25-5:12
Wednesday: Romans 1:18-27 & Matthew 5:20-26
Thursday: Romans 1:28-2:9 & Matthew 5:27-32
Friday: Romans 2:14-29 & Matthew 5:33-41
Saturday: Romans 1:7-12 & Matthew 5:42-48

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

By St. Justin (Popovich):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/bible_how.aspx

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/ware_howto.aspx

This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:

As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:
