We all have friends and loved ones that we want to introduce to the Church. But some people are shy they might not want to visit right away or talk to one of our priests.

Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please spread the word about festival sponsorships to your doctor, your dentist, your hair stylist, your dog groomer, your grass cutter, your water softener folks, etc., etc. YOU spend money (hundreds or thousands of dollars) at these businesses each year. Most of these businesses would be HAPPY to sponsor our festival since you have established a relationship already. The only way they will not sponsor the festival? If YOU dont ask! So ask! :) Share any or all of this information with them:

FESTIVAL SPONSORSHIP SOLICITATION LETTER 2019

FESTIVAL SPONSORSHIP FORM

FESTIVAL SPONSORSHIP 3-FOLD SPONSORSHIP FORM

FESTIVAL 2019 SPONSORSHIP DONATION SITE

The people you do business with cant find this information without you! Help them help our festival by asking them to sponsor the Russian Festival!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
12/6/19, 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.

For Adults: from the Orthodox Church in America

For Children: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Non-Perishable Food Items Gathered at Every Service 
11/6/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Beginning on Saturday, June 15 we provide our parishioners the opportunity to bring non-perishable food items to St. Vladimirs at every Divine Service. The bin to deposit these is located between the two bathrooms in the foyer of the parish church. This is a great opportunity to teach our children the value of helping those in need a value our Lord made it clear that we should fulfill in the 25th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew. It is also a great opportunity to remind ourselves of this important Christian precept. Our goal here is to change our St. Vladimir family paradigm to I am going to church I need to grab a non-perishable food item and bring it with me. Lets all work hard on that paradigm so that in a small way we are all working together to follow our Lords commandment ...Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto Me.

Parish Day School Update 
11/6/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We continue to move forward towards the ground breaking for our parish school. We have received all requisite approvals from the State of Michigan. We have received tentative approval from Washtenaw County (assuming the ground perks where we have already had a septic system for 30 years, which is extraordinarily likely). We have received several bids on the building of the school and have chosen a contractor. Our School Steering Committee continues to work diligently towards the opening of the school, which is set for the fall of 2020. The Steering Committee has invited a special consultant to join us for St. Vladimirs Day weekend this year to help form our School Board and provide more detailed information to the parish about Orthodox Christian Classical Education. Barring any extraordinarily unexpected circumstances the school will be built this construction season.

BUT we still have work to do. First it is ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL that we continue to entreat the Lord that He bless this work. There is much spiritual resistance in such an endeavor, and your prayers are very important in this regard. Second it is important that parishioners follow through on the pledges they made to support the school. We have no doubt that everyone who pledged intends to do this. We also are certain that many people will pledge as the work gets underway. But we often forget to follow through on such things. Not because we dont want to, but because life happens and it distracts us from our good intentions. From a tactical point of view you may want to consider establishing a recurring payment to fulfill your pledge, either by visiting the link below to do that via credit card or debit card:

PLEDGE TO SUPPORT ANN ARBOR ORTHODOX CLASSICAL ACADEMY

OR if you would prefer to set up an automatic transfer from your bank account to the school account to fulfill your pledge please contact our Treasurer, Mikhail Fisenkov, at treasurer@stvladimiraami.org. If you have not made a pledge yet please considering doing so! Thank you for your spiritual and material support as we move forward to create the ONLY Orthodox School in Michigan!
