Fr. Gregory is available to bring Holy Communion to the sick, bless homes and apartments (or dorm rooms), or to provide spiritual support to any and all of our parish family whenever there is a need. Please do not hesitate to contact him! Too often those in need suffer in silence because they do not want to bother the priest. Fr. Gregory is here to serve our parish family just as Christ came to minister so too is this the calling of the parish priest. You can reach Fr. Gregory by phone or SMS at 734-649-5746 or via email at ogrisha@stvladimiraami.org.

Liturgy on your Name's Day? 
24/5/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It is a true blessing to have the opportunity to partake of Holy Communion on one's patron saint's day. Fr. Gregory is willing to consider serving Liturgy on your name's day yes YOURS. If you would be willing to attend the Divine Services on the eve of the feast and on the feast itself, and to partake of Holy Communion on that day please contact him. This is not a guarantee that we can do this but we can certainly try. But please don't tell him a week before. Something like six months before would be better three months before as a minimum. See Fr. Gregory with questions or email ogrisha@stvladimiraami.org!

Spring and Summer Brings Missionaries to our Doors - Share the Orthodox Faith 
23/5/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As the weather improves missionaries from various religions tend to appear at our homes. At St. Vladimir's we have many pamphlets and booklets on the Orthodox Faith that are free for anyone to take. These can be found at the back of the church near the main entrance doors. Please feel free to take information home with you to share with the missionaries that come to visit you. It seems only fair that if they want us to take their information that we offer them information about Orthodox Christianity. Many missionaries have found the Orthodox Church in this way. No one is mandated to do this, but if you would like to you are welcome to. Please feel free to contact Fr. Gregory with questions in this regard.

Church Etiquette Series this June 
23/5/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


We are often asked about this topic. Is it ever OK to talk in Church? How do we greet our friends when we see them in Church? When is it allowed to walk about during the services? Or is it ever? What to do if we see a child or adult clearly violating decorum? Who makes these decisions? We do not have a shared understanding of these and many other questions of etiquette in our parish. That is not something unique to our parish by any means. But this causes temptations for everyone. We cant stop all temptations, but we can work on educating ourselves in this regard and being more clear about expectations. In order to help us come to a shared understanding that will make this part of parish life easier for everyone we will hold a series of lectures and discussions in this regard in June of this year. Please begin to think of issues you would like to discuss and solve when we hold this series. We hope that what will come from this effort are clear guidelines that will allow everyone to be more at peace when worshiping at St. Vladimirs. If you would like to share a thought or a suggestion in this regard please email info@stvladimiraami.org.

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
22/5/19, 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)

Joshua Jobst Named Choir Director at Holy Transfiguration Parish 
21/5/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Our own Joshua Jobst has been named Choir Director at Holy Transfiguration parish in Livonia! Congratulations to Josh and to our St. Vladimirs choir! Why congratulations to our own choir for losing Josh?! The fact that one of our parish choir members can help another parish like this shows the strength of our choir and our choir program! And anyway Josh will still join us for weekday services on a regular basis, so we will see him and he will continue to sing at St. Vladimirs. We should take this opportunity to thank our Choir Director, Julia Easson, and all our choir for their extraordinarily hard work. It is not easy to sing well at all the services it is a ministry. And we are VERY thankful for our choirs efforts to glorify God on behalf of our parish family!
