Nursery is for Nursing Parents Please Note 
25/8/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Parents it is your responsibility to care for your children during the Divine Services. Too often there are children in the Nursery and this makes it difficult for nursing mothers to use the Nursery. It should not be the responsibility of nursing mothers to chase the children out of the Nursery. This sends EXACTLY THE WRONG MESSAGE to young families that they are not welcome at STV. There are two types of children that should be in the nursery: those who are nursing and those who need their diaper changed. It is understood that not every child can stand through the entire service. If a young child needs to step out of the service that is fine of course, but you as a parent must accompany your child in such a situation. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions.

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
24/8/22, 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.

On Saturday after the Divine Liturgy we will have our meal in a tent, as we usually do for big events. But we need to put tables and chairs into the tent on Friday before the evening services (that start at 6 p.m.) and put them back in their places after the meal on Saturday mid-day. If you can help with that please contact our Starosta, Jack Mitchell, at starosta@stvladimiraami.org.

22/8/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

God willing, Subdeacon Dmitri Mihaliov will be ordained a deacon on Saturday, August 27 for service at our St. Vladimir parish. Ordination is the sacrament of the Holy Church that we probably least often participate in, but it is important that we all participate in this ordination appropriately. We ask all our parishioners to review the ordination instructions found at the link below and to address questions to Fr. Gregory or Fr. Colin. Please remember - the Divine Liturgy begins at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 27.

Whoever confesses his sins with simplicity of heart, with feelings of compunction and humility and the desire to correct himself, will receive forgiveness of sins and peace of conscience through the power of the grace of God acting in the Mystery.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
21/8/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: II Corinthians 2:3-15 & Matthew 23:13-22
Tuesday: II Corinthians 2:14-3:3 & Matthew 23:23-28
Wednesday: II Corinthians 3:4-11 & Matthew 23:29-39
Thursday: II Corinthians 4:1-6 & Matthew 24:13-28
Friday: II Corinthians 4:13-18 & Matthew 24:27-33, 42-51
Saturday: I Corinthians 1:3-9 & Matthew 19:3-12

: II . 2:4-15 23:13-22
: II . 2:14-3:3 23:23-28
: II . 3:4-11 23:29-39
: II . 4:1-6 24:13-28
: II . 4:13-18 24:27-33, 42-51
: I . 1:3-9 19:3-12

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.
