Please consider joining this effort again this year. In past years St. Vladimir's has been very well represented, but this year it is not being hosted in our parish, but in Northern Indiana. Not a far drive to be sure. We are hoping for another great St. Vladimir's turnout. Please register today!

Liturgy on your Name's Day? 
18/8/17, 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!

Divine Liturgy Explained 
17/8/17, 06:00 PM
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!

Transfiguration of the Lord is August 19 
16/8/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The great feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord falls on August 19 each year. At this feast, following the Divine Liturgy, we bless the first fruits that are becoming ripe as the harvest begins. In the Greek tradition usually grapes were blessed. In the Russian tradition usually apples. Any fruit is acceptable. Please bring your basket with fruits to the Divine Liturgy on the feast!

Weekly Educational Offering 
16/8/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults. 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):

Learning more about our Faith 
15/8/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Our Orthodox Christian faith is a great gift given to us by our Lord and Savior Himself. As with any gift we should be grateful for this one, but realize also that it is our responsibility not just to be grateful in the abstract, but to delve into our faith, to lean about our faith, to know our faith not as an abstraction, but because it is helpful for our salvation to understand the gift that the Lord has given us. To learn more about your faith please visit the special web page we have created on our site for this express purpose. The address is found below. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions regarding this or any spiritual topic.

All English Divine Service Schedule Next Cycle is August 25 & 26 
14/8/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The Divine Services are theology in action one of the most important and most easily accessible sources of truth provided by the Holy Church for our salvation. In order to help more and more people gain access to this source of truth and to introduce new people to the Orthodox Faith our parish practice is to serve one cycle of Divine Services per month (Friday Evening Services and Saturday Divine Liturgy) completely in English. This is a missionary effort designed to allow those who are interested in Orthodox Christianity to more easily access the beauty of the Divine Services. ALL ARE WELCOME at these services! Please invite friends and loved ones! Let us work together to no longer allow Orthodox Christianity to be the best kept secret in the spiritual life of North America! Please join us!

Future All English Divine Services at St. Vladimirs:

Dormition Lent Begins Today 
14/8/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Today the Holy Church calls us to being fasting in preparation for the Great Fast of the Dormition of the Mother of God, which falls on August 28 every year. This is a strict fast. As usual no meat or dairy products are consumed, but fish is only allowed on the feast of the Transfiguration (on August 19). This is a short fast for our own spiritual health we cannot put off beginning, or we may not start until it is too late to take advantage of this gift that the Lord gives us in our spiritual struggle. Please see Fr. Gregory or Fr. Moses with questions about fasting or any other aspect of our spiritual life!
