Preparing the Parish Church for Pentecost 
23/5/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The great feast of Pentecost is May 27. Please join us on Saturday, May 26 for a Memorial Divine Liturgy beginning at 9:00 a.m. Following the Liturgy we will decorate the parish church with boughs, branches, and flowers for the Pentecost vigil. This is a similar activity to our Lazarus Saturday church decoration in preparation for the Palm Sunday vigil. Many good memories are waiting to be had at these sorts of events. Please bring your children! It is especially important for them to participate in these sorts of activities. All are welcome!

Small but Important Points from Hierarchal Visit 
23/5/18, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

During his archpastoral visit Vladyka asked Fr. Gregory to remind our parishioners that before receiving a blessing from a bishop they should make a small bow from the waist. This is minor on one hand, but the fact that Vladyka cares enough to point out this minor issue should show us his love for us as well as his trust in us. He sees us as a parish that will in the future receive hierarchal visitors from outside the diocese and wants us to be ready to welcome those visitors appropriately. We do not interact with bishops on a regular basis, and so such things can be easy to forget. We will remind you again before the visit of Metropolitan Jonah this July to celebrate St. Vladimirs Day.

Vladyka also noted that starting this Sunday prosphora will only be available from the kiosk at the end of the Divine Liturgy and not before: after all have kissed the cross and after the Royal Doors have been closed. Please make a note of this and prepare your children for this change as they are likely to be effected by it more than adults.

Archbishop Peter Thank You! 
21/5/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to all who made the visit of Archbishop Peter to our parish this weekend such a success! His Eminence joined us for Vigil on Saturday evening and Liturgy on Sunday morning. At the Liturgy on Sunday morning Mark Chaffee and Colin Bower were tonsured Readers for serve in our St. Vladimir Parish. Subdeacon Dmitry Kashchenko was ordained a Deacon to serve in our parish and Deacon Thomas Sprunger was ordained a priest to serve at the parish in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This was the first ordination of a priest in the history of our St. Vladimirs parish! So many people worked hard to make Vladykas visit so fruitful and we thank you all: those who sang, those who served, those who cooked, and everyone else who worked quietly behind the scenes for the glory of God! This was a real triumph for our parish thank you all! Many pictures are already up on our Facebook page. Eventually all will be posted on our photo album as well.

Devils take great delight in fullness, and drunkenness and bodily comfort. Fasting possesses great power and it works glorious things. To fast is to banquet with angels.

17/5/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

God willing, Subdeacon Dmitry Kashchenko will be ordained a deacon on Sunday May 20 for service at our St. Vladimir parish. Ordination is the sacrament of the Holy Church that we least often participate in, but it is important that we all participate in this ordination appropriately. We ask all our parishioners to review the ordination instructions here and to address questions to Fr. Gregory or Fr. Moses. Please remember - the Divine Liturgy begins at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 20.

Ordination Instructions:

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
14/5/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It is a fact, brothers and sisters, that the path of the saints in this life is one full of troubles. They either endure the pain of longing for that which is to come, like the one who said, Woe is me that I have such a long pilgrimage (Ps. 120:5, LXX) or they are distressed by their longing for the salvation of others, as Paul wrote to the Corinthians, I am afraid that whey I come to you, God may humble me and cause me to weep and mourn over many who have sinned and not repented of impurity, fornication and licentiousness which they have practiced.'

No matter what bitterness has befallen you, no matter what unpleasantness has happened to you, say, I shall endure this for Jesus Christ! and it will be easier for you. For the name of Jesus Christ is powerful. Through it all unpleasantness is calmed, and demons disappear. Your disappointments will also be calmed and you pusillanimity will be quieted.
