Slow Internet at Church 
5/4/20, 09:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Our satellite internet (the only option we have at the church location) is slow. The satellite dish was somehow physically moved out of alignment. This should be fixed early this coming week. Until then, our live streams are a little spotty and we are sorry for this. Thank you for being patient as we work hard to get this fixed.

Prayer in the Time of Coronavirus 
27/3/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It is important for us to pray. To focus. To have something that we can do rather than just sit all day and think about viruses coming to get us when we arent looking. :) Obviously that is not how the virus works. If we social distance we save lives. Period. But the verb to social distance is, at its very best, passive. We are not passive beings! We need to act! This prayer was approved by the Synod of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The English is our translation and I thank those that helped with this! I STRONGLY suggest that each of us read this prayer every day at 2:00 p.m. If you cant read it then read it ANY time. At least once.

St. Vladimir Church Closed to Public Worship 
24/3/20, 12:01 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

According to the Executive Order of Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Policy of the Diocese of Chicago & Mid-America, St. Vladimir's is temporarily closed to public worship due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although we are saddened by this situation, we also understand that in this war all of society including our St. Vladimirs family must unite to defeat the virus enemy. All resources must be brought to bear if victory is to be obtained. For us that means isolating ourselves from each other so that we do not in any way endanger those in our community who are at high risk of death from the virus. Most of us are healthy. Most of us are strong. Most of us will be unaffected by the virus. But we have to do our part we have to fight selfish self interest and we have to follow the advice of the experts and be obedient to the decisions of our ruling bishop. We thank everyone for their understanding and for their efforts to get us to the point of victory over this invisible foe!

Please contact me or Fr. Moses at any time for any spiritual or material support you need during this time of quarantine. With Gods help and our sincere effort we can have great hope in overcoming our common societal enemy! Let it never be said that we did not do our part with sincerity and zeal! Let it never be said that we felt ourselves special and not in need of taking part in this war! As Orthodox Christians let us be exemplary members of the society in which the merciful Lord has placed us! Let us serve others with valor and Christian Love, whether that service is (for most of us) just staying home and staying safe, or hands-on service of those in need, or other action that we may be called to in service to the eventual victory! All Divine Services will be broadcast on our Live Streams please join us and worship with us just as you would when we gather in the Church, but from your own desert that the Lord has provided us during this time of Great Lent. We are pilgrims in this life dear brothers and sisters the pandemic has just reminded us a bit of this reality. Glory to God for this and for all things!

Fr. Gregory
