Monday First Things: Teaching of the Holy Fathers

Posted by Fr. Gregory


ďConquer men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of justice to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.Ē

There is not a sign up for the funeral, which will be held outside. Masks are required for the funeral service, as is 6-foot social distancing. We will mark places for people to stand safely. Overflow space on the lawn may be used, but masks and physical distancing must be maintained even if all marked spots are occupied. It is imperative that those who are present follow the directions of Parish Council members, who will be present to assist with the funeral and quarantine logistics. The funeral will be broadcast live on our Facebook page for those who are unable to attend, and posted later on our YouTube page.

Burial will be at the St. Vladimir Parish Cemetery.

May Nickís memory be eternal!

One of the positive things that has come from the pandemic and quarantine is the great number of people that have volunteered to read at St. Vladimirís at the Divine Services. Many new people have begun to read, and we want to provide the opportunity for our new readers, or those who would like to learn to read in the future, to be more educated in the structure and process of the Divine Services. Or put another way, to learn what to read and sing when (and why). We will offer classes via Zoom/Google Meet Russian and separate classes in English. To express your interest please email info@stvladimiraami.org.

Christ is Risen!

I have the sad duty to report that today our brother in Christ, Nick Vlisides, fell asleep in the Lord. We ask your prayers for the newly reposed Nicholas, his wife Julia, his family, and all who are suffering at his loss. May the merciful Lord grant him His Kingdom! More information on the funeral arrangements will be forthcoming. For now Ė your prayers for Nick, Julia, and their families are most important and most appreciated.

Indeed He is Risen!

ďDo not fall into despair because of stumbling. I do not mean that you should not feel contrition for them, but that you should not think them incurable. For it is more expedient to be bruised than dead. There is, indeed, a Healer for the man who has stumbled, even He Who on the Cross asked that mercy be shown to His crucifiers, He Who pardoned His murders while He hung on the Cross. ĎAll manner of sin,í He said, Ďand blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men,í that is, through repentance.Ē

St. Vladimirís First Steps out of Quarantine 
23/5/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Beginning with Sunday, May 24 some of the Divine Services will be open to St. Vladimirís parishioners to attend. You must sign up ahead of time. You must follow the St. Vladimirís Quarantine Exit Plan, which outlines hand washing, physical distancing, masking, how to confess, and many other pertinent details of how we return to corporate worship safely. You can find the sign up sheet and the Quarantine Exit Plan at this link:

SIGN UP TO ATTEND DIVINE SERVICES

Let us be diligent in making sure that St. Vladimirís is a place that gives life Ė not that causes death. We hope that our zeal in following the Quarantine Exit Plan will help our state in our own small way to continue to exit the quarantine and never return!
