The Ann Arbor Saint Our Spiritual Responsibility 
9/12/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


December 12. This is a date to put on your calendars. Why? We have been given a HUGE privilege in that the Lord saw fit to allow St. Mardarije (Uskokovic) to repose in Ann Arbor. That is right - we have our own Ann Arbor saint! How many Orthodox Christians all over the world would LOVE to have their own saint! A saint that reposed in their city! And our response to this incredible gift that the the Lord gave us is: YAWN. Nothing. No response. No interest. Really? Have we become that cold to spiritual life that we look at the gift that the Lord gave us and our response is to be simply dead? Where are the newborn boys in our parish named Mardarije? Where are the molebens being served to OUR SAINT? Where is the personal veneration of the big and lovely icon we have in our parish church? Perhaps our issues stem from not knowing the life of this favorite of God.

First Sunday of the Month Helping You Support Your Parish  
2/12/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Each first Sunday of the month we will have Parish Council members ready to help you during the parish meal. Help you by answering questions you may have about why you should support your parish. Help you by answering questions about how you can support your parish. Help you by assisting you in setting up a recurring donation to support St. Vladimirs if you would like to do so. No one will attack you. :) But if you would like help, or you have questions, we are setting aside this time specifically for this purpose.

Parish Prayer Kit Updated! 
1/12/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Everyone should own a prayer book. We strongly recommend the Jordanville edition, and we have this in our parish kiosk in English and Russian. However, sometimes we don't have a prayer book handy, or sometimes we need practical tools in our "prayer kit". We have added the St. Pachomius rule in Russian. Please check out all the resources on this page!

Congratulations to all with the beginning of the Nativity Lent! 
27/11/20, 11:59 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We congratulate all our parish family with the beginning of the yearly Lenten period preceding the feast of our Lords Nativity! This Lenten period begins November 28 each year and runs until January 7 the feast of our Lords Nativity. This Lenten period is much less stringent than Great Lent. During this fast, as usual, we abstain from meat and dairy products. But fish is allowed on many days. Please consult our parish schedule (linked below) for more details on the culinary aspects of fasting. Of course, the culinary fast is a tool to aid us spiritually to prepare for our Lords Nativity it is not an end unto itself. If you have not fasted in the past please consult Fr. Gregory for practical advice on how to be successful in fasting. Fasting a very important way that we place ourselves in obedience to the Church, the Ark of our salvation, and extraordinarily helpful in our spiritual struggle to draw nearer to our Lord at this special time of year.

How You Can Help! 
27/11/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


People often ask us how they can help our parish. On one level that answer is different for everyone. Each of us should use the talents that the Lord has given us for His glory. But specifically we need more catechists: trained parishioners who can help prepare adults for baptism, Godparents for their duties, and couples for marriage. Our diocesan Pastoral School has a Catechist Program that starts each fall. Please consider if you could enter this two-semester program. More catechists will help our parish A LOT. And if this isnt the thing for you that is fine but please do consider how you can use your talents for Gods glory. We will all answer for that when we leave this life. Lets prepare a good answer beginning today! For more information on our catechism program at St. Vladimir's please see Deacon Colin, who heads up this effort!
