Divine Liturgy Explained 
22/6/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The Divine Service we attend most often is the Divine Liturgy. We know it, but do we know it? The better we understand the Divine Liturgy the more we will engage in this "work of the people", and the more we will get from it. Or perhaps better put, the more it will transform us. And since we are seeking to be transformed into the children of God, should we not take the time to delve more deeply into the Divine Liturgy - the most theologically significant Divine Service? That is a purely rhetorical question of course, since the answer must be "yes"! The article below is a classic of the 20th century, written by one of the most influential theologians of that time. That time was not that long ago - and this article is well, well worth the read!

Metropolitan Philip Visit Thank You! 
19/6/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to all who made the visit of Metropolitan Philip of Poltava to St. Vladimirs yesterday such a resounding success! His Eminence had many good things to say about our parish, which reflects very positively on our parish family. So many people worked diligently to make the weekend a success that it would be impossible to list everyone here. And many worked behind the scenes, so to speak, for the glory of God and the good of the parish He has entrusted to us. Thank you all this hierarchal visit was a great success and it was that because we came together to work for the Lord. When we do this we are at our best. Let us strive now not to do so rarely, but often, combining our sincere efforts with Gods Grace. There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you dont care who gets the credit. This saying is at the top of every Parish Council agenda and it is true not just for the Parish Council, but for our whole parish family! Thank you to everyone for a wonderful weekend!

Emergency Cards Available 
14/6/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The diocese has provided each of our parishes with Emergency Cards. These cards are to be filled out and put in your wallet so that if it were ever to happen that you were in an accident or otherwise needed spiritual support, but could not speak for yourself, the authorities would find the card in your wallet and call Fr. Gregory to come to you. We hope none of our parishioners ever needs to use one of these cards, but it is a good idea to have one just in case. Please see Fr. Gregory if you have questions. Emergency cards can be found near the front doors - near the pamphlets that are available to all for free.
