Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
9/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Acts 3:19-26 & John 2:1-11
Tuesday: Acts 4:1-10 & John 3:16-21
Wednesday: Acts 4:13-22 & John 5:17-24
Thursday: Acts 4:23-31 & John 5:24-30
Friday: Acts 5:1-11 & John 5:30-6:2
Saturday: Acts 5:21-33 & John 6:14-27

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

Annual Meeting is May 16 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. Vladimirs 
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. Vladimirs. 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.
