Happy Thanksgiving! 
26/11/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We congratulate all our St. Vladimir's family and friends with the Thanksgiving Holiday. This civil holiday - very Christian in its character - reminds us of our need to thank God for His many blessings upon us. May we humbly suggest, before you sit down to your family dinner today, that you take a few minutes either privately or as a family to thank God for the many blessings He has given you this past year, and for the many blessings He has given to our parish family. We are privileged to call you all brothers and sisters in Christ, and we thank God for you and for our parish family. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is Coming Special Collections 
24/11/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Each year around the Thanksgiving Holiday we have two special collections in our parish to assist those in need. We thank God prayerfully for His bounty towards us, and we thank Him materially by helping those who are struggling in this life.

On the Sunday BEFORE Thanksgiving (this coming Sunday, November 22) we have a collection to support International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC). IOCC is the clearinghouse charity for all Orthodox Churches in North America. They provide help to all in need in North American and throughout the world regardless of their confession of faith.

Update 11/23/20: We collected $172 on Sunday, November 22 for IOCC. Thank you all!

On the Sunday AFTER Thanksgiving (Sunday, November 29) we have a collection to support our Diocesan Fund for those in Need. Archbishop Peter is often approached for help this fund allows him to help those who are appealing to him in their time of difficulty.

Both these collections will take place in the church at the end of the Liturgy, as we receive the antidron. If you would like to support the November 29 collection you can do that here (please specify the reason for your donation):

Please note that the yearly Lenten period in preparation for our Lords Nativity begins on November 28. From this day until January 7 we do not partake of meat or dairy products. On many days during this lent fish is allowed. Please consult the parish schedule of services for details in this regard. Have questions about fasting? Never tried to follow the fast before? Please talk to Fr. Gregory for answers! We abstain from meats that we might abstain from the passions... writes St. John Chrysostom. Let us indeed use the fast for what it is a tool to aid us in our spiritual struggle for salvation!

Posted by Fr. Gregory


Please join us Friday at 6:00 p.m. and Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. for the annual commemoration of St. Michael and all the Angels. We have quite a few parishioners named after the angels (our Michaels, Raphaels, Gabriels, etc.), and our Mother Raphaela in Australia celebrates on this day too. We congratulated all on their name's day!

All are welcome! The services will be inside the church, so we ask that you sign up. This allows us to understand the number of people that will attend since we have limited, physically distanced spaces inside the temple:

Winter Worship Space Last Week of Fund Raising 
12/11/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Everyone likes to see the combination of words that amount to something like ...end of fund raising. That includes the Parish Council. We would prefer not to ask you to donate wed like to see it just happen without any effort on our side. But since none of us, as far as we know, can read minds, we need to tell you what is happening in the parish so you can take appropriate measures based on your abilities and your reality. We start construction of the Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy on November 16, so November 15 be our last day of fund raising for this effort. Let us be thankful for those who make it possible to raise over $5,000 so far! And let us strive to get to that goal of $15,000!

If you havent had a chance yet to make a donation for the winter worship space please take a moment and visit our giving page for that effort:
