New Wednesday Class - All Are Welcome 
19/6/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We strive to provide our parish family with several opportunities to connect with the Church throughout the week, but we are especially focusing on Wednesday the mid point of the week. A new offering in this regard is Small Compline + Discussion at Fr. Moses' home each Wednesday evening beginning at 6:00 p.m. and ending around 7:30 p.m. For more information, his address, etc., please call or text him please see this flyer:

In addition to the service and the discussion light refreshments will be served. Please bring a snack to share if you can. This means that now we have an activity to the east of Ann Arbor (Fr. Moses'), to the West (at St. Vladimir's the weekly akathist) and to the south (Adrian Bible Study). We now need to establish something in Ann Arbor itself and/or to the north. If you are interested in establishing a Bible Study or other similar gathering in either of those areas please contact Fr. Gregory. Here is the Wednesday night lineup as of today:

6:00 p.m. Weekly Akathist for the Ill at St. Vladimir's
6:00 p.m. Weekly Small Compline & Spiritual Discussion at Fr. Moses'
8:00 p.m. Adrian Bible Study

Also attending from our parish was Karl (Mercurius) Meyer (Diocesan Council) and Dmitri Kapousta (Diocesan Pastoral School). The assembly was a great success and we are thankful to the Lord for His mercy. Please find the Assembly Resolution on page 3 of our weekly bulletin, Sunday Reading:

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
18/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Prayer in church is important. The best thoughts and feelings come in church, yes, and the enemy attacks more violently in church, but with the sign of the Cross and the Jesus Prayer, you drive him away. It is good to stand in some dark corner in church and to pray to God. Let us lift up our hearts! the priest exclaims, but our mind often creeps along the ground, thinking about indecent things. Fight against this.

Weekly Educational Offering 
13/6/18, 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: an explanation of this coming Sunday's Gospel reading from Blessed Theophylact:

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers

Posted by Fr. Gregory

You need not be despondent. Let those be despondent who do not believe in God. For them sorrow is burdensome, of course, because besides earthly enjoyment they have nothing. But believers must not be despondent, for through sorrows they receive the right of sonship, without which is impossible to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
4/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The Lord did not come to make a display. He came to heal and to teach suffering men. For one who wanted to make a display the thing would have been just to appear and dazzle the beholders. But for Him Who came to heal and to teach the way was not merely to dwell here, but to put Himself at the disposal of those who needed Him, and to be manifested according as they could bear it, not vitiating the value of the Divine appearing by exceeding their capacity to receive it.

+ St. Athanasius the Great

Divine Liturgy Explained 
2/6/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The Divine Service we attend most often is the Divine Liturgy. We know it, but do we know it? The better we understand the Divine Liturgy the more we will engage in this "work of the people", and the more we will get from it. Or perhaps better put, the more it will transform us. And since we are seeking to be transformed into the children of God, should we not take the time to delve more deeply into the Divine Liturgy - the most theologically significant Divine Service? That is a purely rhetorical question of course, since the answer must be "yes"! The article below is a classic of the 20th century, written by one of the most influential theologians of that time. That time was not that long ago - and this article is well, well worth the read!
