Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
15/7/20, 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)

Our Second Pascha is July 28! 
14/7/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Please plan to join us for the feast of St. Vladimir our parishs Second Pascha on July 27 at 6:00 p.m. for Vigil and July 28 at 9:00 a.m. for Divine Liturgy. Our intention is to serve both Vigil and Liturgy outside since we expect to have visitors these days and the visitors would not know to sign up for indoor services. We will also need one or two people to stay over night at the church to keep an eye on the worship space, the tents, etc. More information can be found at this flyer:

Rubrics/Liturgics Classes begin Week of 7/13/20 
14/7/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The pandemic does have some blessings. One of those was the opportunity for more people to read at the increased number of Divine Services that we have been able to hold during these days. Our new readers were trained on the fly, so to speak, and we want to thank those that worked so hard to help the new readers. But now that we can take a breath we have the opportunity to train the new readers, as well as those who would like to learn to read, about the rubrics and liturgics of the Divine Services. This is one of those things that is easiest to learn in your native language because there is a specific lexicon for English and a specific lexicon for Russian. Classes begin this coming week. Please join us!

Russian: Tuesday, July 14, 2020 7:00 p.m.

English: Wednesday, July 15, 2020 7:30 p.m.

Please join using a computer or a tablet rather than your phone. We will be sharing screen shots and the phone is just too small for this function to be useful. Any headphones will work if plugged into the mic plug on your computer.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
12/7/20, 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: Romans 16:17-24 & Matthew 13:10-23
Tuesday: I Corinthians 1:1-9 & Matthew 13:24-30
Wednesday: I Corinthians 2:9-3:8 & Matthew 13:31-36
Thursday: I Corinthians 3:18-23 & Matthew 13:36-43
Friday: I Corinthians 4:5-8 & Matthew 13:44-54
Saturday: Romans 9:1-5 & Matthew 9:18-26

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