Annual Meeting is May 16 Ė Membership Drive on Now! 
7/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please join us for our annual parish meeting on May 3/16, 2021. God willing, the Kursk Icon will be present for the annual meeting. That is a first for our parish, and likely will never happen again. We need to see that as a blessing, and perhaps even a message. The Lord has blessed us greatly during the pandemic. The Parish Council is very interested in finding the silver lining of the cloud that is the pandemic. To find out what that means (and it means something very significant for our parish) join us at the meeting!

Kursk Root Icon to Visit St. Vladimirís 
6/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


God willing the Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God will visit our St. Vladimir parish on Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16. As is our parish tradition, we hope to keep the church open all night from Saturday to Sunday to allow people to venerate the icon from around our region. This provides a wonderful opportunity for our parish family members to spend time with the icon in the church in a quiet, prayerful atmosphere. But in order to provide this service to our parish family, friends, and neighbors we need volunteers to be with the icon at all times. The sign up for this duty can be found here:

Visiting Graves Thomas Sunday 
6/5/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


As is our usual practice we will visit the graves of our friends and loved ones on Thomas Sunday (May 9) to greet them with the Resurrection of the Lord. We will process after the late Liturgy with our first stop to serve a Litya for the departed at the memorial rock at St. Vladimirís. We will then go to the graves in our parish cemetery. We should arrive at Forest Hill Cemetery about 2:30 p.m. For the graves of those we cannot visit on Thomas Sunday we will visit after the Liturgy on Radonitsa (May 11). On that day we will serve Liturgy at 8:00 a.m. followed by the first Pannykhida after Pascha. If you have graves that you would like our clergy to visit during this Paschal season please contact Fr. Gregory to arrange a visit.

First Sunday of the Month Ė Helping You Support Your Parish  
5/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Each first Sunday of the month (unless Pascha falls on the first Sunday, in which case we do this on the second Sunday) 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. Vladimirís 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.

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday!  
5/5/21, 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 childrenís 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)

Holy Week & Pascha Thank You Ė ITíS NOT OVER 
4/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to all who made our Holy Week and Pascha at St. Vladimirís such a success this year! Last year we had just a skeleton crew present to serve the services due to the pandemic. It was so nice to have more people able to attend this year! God willing next year will be without any pandemic measures at all! Our choir worked incredibly hard to prepare for these holiest of days Ė please take a moment to remember our choir members in your prayers. And if you get a chance: thank a choir member for their many, many hours of preparation for the sake of our parish family! But not just the choir: the sisterhood worked liked crazy to make our holy days successful, as well as all those who serve in the altar, our brotherhood, and many, many more who worked quietly behind the scenes Ė hoping only for a reward from the Lord. Please remember all who exerted such herculean efforts in our parish family. The Lord knows them by name even if you donít.

BUT HERE IS THE THING: the celebration just BEGINS at Pascha. Sometimes we think that is the end. Letís set things straight now Ė Pascha is the beginning of the celebration!

This week we have services every night at 6:00 p.m. and every morning at 8:00 a.m. That is Pascha every day for a week! Of course no one can go to every service, but everyone can go to at least one or two during this special week. And should. And we can almost say ďmustĒ, for how can we celebrate the Feast of Feasts and the Day of Days for just a few hours? We canít! We need to celebrate in earnest for Bright Week, and really continue to celebrate during these 40 days Ė until the Ascension of the Lord. Please join us! In person if you can, and virtually if you canít. As St. John Chrysostom says in his homily read on Pascha night: ď...the table is fully laden, delight ye all...Ē The Holy Church lays out the banquet of faith Ė but it will not force feed us. It is up to us to receive with love the free gift of God: the Paschal Divine Services which so nourish us spiritually. May God grant us all the strength to receive this gift by participating in the Divine Services this Pascha week!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
3/5/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The chief end of our life is to live in communion with God. To this end the Son of God became incarnate, in order to return us to this divine communion, which was lost by the fall into sin. Through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, we enter into communion with the Father and thus attain our purpose.

+ St. Theophan the Recluse
