Annual Meeting Thank You 
18/5/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to all who made our parish annual meeting on Sunday, May 16 such a wonderful celebration of our parish family! We were able to ask questions and answers of those holding positions of leadership in our parish, we elected new leaders for the coming year, and we thanked those who have served our parish family in the past year. You can find the submitted reports and a link to a Google Doc here that will allow you to ask questions even though the meeting was completed yesterday:

ST. VLADIMIR PARISH COUNCIL PAGE

Thank you Lauren Rogers who served our parish family as Secretary this past year. With four growing children, a farm, and a full time job it is just not possible for Lauren to fulfill these duties in the coming year, and that is completely understandable. But we will miss her input on the parish council most certainly!

The Lord shows us that we ought not to answer those who ask a question with malicious intent (cf. Mt. 21:23-27). For He Himself did not reply to those Jews who questioned Him with cunning, although He was not at a loss for an answer.

THIS SATURDAY & SUNDAY: Kursk Root Icon to Visit St. Vladimirs 
12/5/21, 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:

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday!  
12/5/21, 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 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 writings of Blessed Theophylact

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

Annual Meeting is May 16 Membership Drive on Now! 
11/5/21, 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!

Visiting Graves on Radonitsa 
10/5/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


As is our usual practice we planned to visit the graves of our friends and loved ones on Thomas Sunday (May 9) to greet them with the Resurrection of the Lord. But the weather was terrible. So we will visit on Radonitsa (May 11). First we will serve Liturgy that day at 8:00 a.m. We will then go to the graves in our parish cemetery. We should arrive at Forest Hill Cemetery about 10:30 a.m. For the graves of those we cannot visit on Radonitsa (May 11) please contact Fr. Gregory to arrange a visit.

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
10/5/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Since the enemy watches you constantly, waiting for an opportunity to sow evil in you, be doubly watchful over yourself, lest you fall in the nets spread for you. As soon as he shows you some fault in your neighbor, hasten to repel this thought, lest it take root in you and grow. Cast it out, so that no trace is left in you, and replace it by the thought of the good qualities you know your neighbor to possess, or of those people generally should have. If you still feel the impulse to pass judgment, add to this the truth that you are given no authority for this and that the moment you assume this authority you thereby make yourself worthy of judgment and condemnation, not before powerless men, but before God, the all-powerful Judge of all. This reversal of thoughts is the strongest means, not only for repelling accidental critical thoughts, but also for completely freeing yourself of this vice.

+ St. Theophan the Recluse (Unseen Warfare)
