All Ascetic Fathers & Mothers Commemorated this Saturday 
11/3/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please join us Friday at 6:00 p.m. and Saturday at 8:00 a.m. for the synaxis of the holy fathers and mothers who have shown forth in asceticism. If you cannot come to the Evening Services or Liturgy please try to join us on one of our live streams.


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. The link to the sign up sheet can be found on our parish home page. If you have any trouble finding that please email: info@stvladimriaami.org.

Forgiveness Vespers in the Pandemic 
11/3/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Forgiveness Sunday is this coming Sunday. There are lots of logistics to manage regarding Forgiveness Vespers itself, which is held immediately after the Divine Liturgy on this day. Here are the details – God willing this limited approach will only have to happen this one year!

1. Forgiveness Vespers will take place after each Divine Liturgy on Sunday, March 14, 2021

2. Generally we bow down, kiss, and embrace each other one at a time during the rite of Forgiveness. This year only we will prostrate ourselves in our own place in four directions led by the priest, each time saying “forgive me a sinner” and answering also “God forgives – forgive me a sinner”. You are welcome to prostrate to the ground if you like, but please note that the cement floor in the winter worship space is likely to leave you dirty, no matter how well we clean it, and likely also damage your clothes.

3. After these group prostrations the choir will sing “Let God arise...” according to the tradition of the Church. All will remain in their places. When this hymn is complete the Vespers service will come to an end.

We thank all for their attention to this modified approach to Forgiveness Vespers for this year. May the merciful Lord forgive us all as we forgive each other, and bless us to enter into the holy days of Great Lent striving together as a parish family not against each other, but against our sins, our weaknesses, and our falls. If we support each other in our Great Lenten struggle, we can have great hope that this year’s Pascha will be for us the most blessed we have ever experienced!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
10/3/21, 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 Youth: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Fasting Rule for this Week 
8/3/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The week before Great Lent (this week) has a unique fasting guideline. This week we are allowed to eat fish and dairy products, but no meat. Here the Holy Church is helping us to prepare ourselves for a good start to Great Lent by allowing us to remove all the dairy products from our homes before Great Lent begins. Fasting is, essentially, the only regular obedience that we, as adult Orthodox Christians, have. And obedience is crucial to progress in the spiritual life. So let us thank God for the opportunity He gives us through His Holy Church to begin our fast this week by easing into it, and let us embrace this great opportunity for obedience: the diligent following of the Church's fasting guidelines.
