Posted by Fr. Gregory

“Christians who believe in Christ make the sign of the cross upon themselves, not casually and disrespectfully, but with full attention, care, fear and trembling and all devout respect… For according to the respect each person show to the Cross, so he receives corresponding strength and help from God.”

Electrical Issues at Church 
31/8/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Last Sunday we got ourselves all set to serve the Divine Liturgy, and then the power went out. The weather was perfect – that obviously wasn’t the issue. Likely DTE needed to do some work on the lines and just turned off the power. That doesn’t happen super often, but we do lose power several times per year and it always seems to be on Sunday morning. That IS a problem because if we don’t have power we don’t have water. The Parish Council met that same Sunday and we decided that it is time for us to secure a full-building generator. So if you have one of those sitting around in your garage please consider donating it to the parish. :) But since that is very unlikely, we will begin raising funds for the generator. The cost is $5000 or so. If you’d like to help with this please contact our Starosta, Jack Mitchell, or our Treasurer, Mikhail Fisenkov. We’ll also do some special collections in the next little while to allow everyone to help with this project as they are able. Our parishioners have been very generous in materially supporting the parish during this pandemic and the Parish Council is very thankful! If you are in a position to help with this project please do help. Once the generator is in place we will never have to cancel services again because of an electrical outage!

Monday First Things: Teaching of the Holy Fathers 
31/8/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

“The proud sin greatly who, after studying secular literature and having turned to the Holy Scriptures, consider all that they say to be the Law of God, and do not endeavour to come to know the thoughts of the prophets and apostles, but seek out from the scriptures inapropriate texts for their own thoughts, as if this were a good work, and not the most defiled kind of study: to distort the thoughts of Scripture and submit them to their own intentions, in spite of obvious contradictions… It is not proper to children and charlatans to try to teach that which they do not know.”

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
26/8/20, 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 children’s 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)

Moving Indoors for Sunday Mornings 
25/8/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

At the Parish Council meeting on Sunday, August 23, 2020 the topic of how best to move back into the parish church for Sunday morning Liturgies was discussed. First – if you have ideas about this please share them with Fr. Gregory or any of the Parish Council members. YOU CAN FIND THE LIST OF PARISH COUNCIL MEMBERS HERE.

Second – we are putting together a plan. We will communicate that plan early and clearly, and we will stick to that plan consistently throughout the cold winter months. No one knows how long the pandemic will last, and no one can predict how the disease curve will progress, so we have to plan for the worst and hope for the best. We ask your patience during this time, and we assure you that there will be ample opportunity for everyone to participate in the Divine Services weekly because we will serve as many Divine Liturgies as is possible, given our human resources (clergy, choir, readers, etc.), every week.

Our parishioners have been very understanding and supportive during this pandemic and we are VERY thankful for this. We ask you to continue that understanding and support as we look forward to our next logistical challenge.

Please provide feedback so that we can continually improve the services by emailing info@stvladimiraami.org or by visiting THIS FEEDBACK FORM.
