Festival Sponsorship How YOU can Help! 
27/8/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please spread the word about festival sponsorships to your doctor, your dentist, your hair stylist, your dog groomer, your grass cutter, your water softener folks, etc., etc. YOU spend money (hundreds or thousands of dollars) at these businesses each year. Most of these businesses would be HAPPY to sponsor our festival since you have established a relationship already. The only way they will not sponsor the festival? If YOU dont ask! So ask! :)

Share the information with them below - and consider sponsoring the festival yourself - every contribution helps us succeed!

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
27/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

If the poison of pride is swelling up in you, turn to the Eucharist; and that Bread, Which is your God humbling and disguising Himself, will teach you humility. If the fever of selfish greed rages in you, feed on this Bread; and you will learn generosity. If the cold wind of coveting withers you, hasten to the Bread of Angels; and charity will come to blossom in your heart. If you feel the itch of intemperance, nourish yourself with the Flesh and Blood of Christ, Who practiced heroic self-control during His earthly life; and you will become temperate. If you are lazy and sluggish about spiritual things, strengthen yourself with this heavenly Food; and you will grow fervent. Lastly, if you feel scorched by the fever of impurity, go to the banquet of the Angels; and the spotless Flesh of Christ will make you pure and chaste.

10% of Festival Proceeds go to Charity 
25/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We ask each of our parishioners to make a tithe to the parish.

Some thoughts on tithing from an Orthodox point of view can be found here and may be helpful:

https://blogs.ancientfaith.com/roadsfromemmaus/2015/10/27/6-reasons-why-tithing-is-good-for-an-orthodox-parish/

You can find more in this article, which is on our parish web site:

http://stvladimiraami.org/pamphlets/syn ... rdship.pdf

It only makes sense if we ask our parishioners to tithe that we would arrange for 10% of our festival proceeds would go to charities other than St. Vladimir's (10% of our regular collections go to the diocese by the way). So - when you volunteer for the festival we want you to know that you are supporting St. Vladimir's - but other charitable organizations as well!

IOCC School Kits in August Compiling Kits THIS SATURDAY 
23/8/18, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

According to our long-standing tradition at St. Vladimirs we will gather to prepare School Kits for International Orthodox Christian Charities in August. On Sunday, August 19 we will have a special collection to support the purchase of the school supplies to be used to create the kits. On Saturday, August 25, we will compile the kits following the Divine Liturgy. PARENTS: please be sure to attend the Liturgy on August 25 (begins at 9:00 a.m.) so your children can participate in compiling the kits. These kits are sent to those in need in countries that mandate that children bring their own supplies to school or they cannot attend. Our small contribution makes it possible for children in these countries to be educated. If you would like to make a donation, but you cannot be at Liturgy on August 19, please contact our parish Treasurer, Mikhail Fisenkov at treasurer@stvladimiraami.org. Thank you for supporting this worthy project!
