You Are a Missionary 
29/6/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The Lord has entrusted us with the Pearl of Great Price the Orthodox Faith. Are we hiding this? Are we keeping it for ourselves? Or are we following the example of the Apostles and working actively to spread our saving faith? If you had the cure for a bodily disease like cancer you would never keep that to yourself it is obvious that this would be unethical and sinful. But we have the cure for DEATH! And sadly we mostly keep it to ourselves. And that is even more unethical and sinful that hiding the cure for any bodily disease. Share your faith. Invite a friend, loved one, or neighbor to the All English Cycle of Services this coming Friday and Saturday and assure them that you will be there to welcome them to St. Vladimirs. If we would all do this if we would make just a minimal effort to invite others we would need to seriously rethink the size of the new church we plan to build because it would be way TOO SMALL. Lets do that. Lets make all our plans useless because there are just too many people in our parish family! Success only comes before work in the dictionary let us get to work spreading our Orthodox Faith by simply inviting others to join us at St. Vladimirs!

Non-Perishable Food Items Gathered at Every Service 
28/6/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Beginning on Saturday, June 15 we provide our parishioners the opportunity to bring non-perishable food items to St. Vladimirs at every Divine Service. The bin to deposit these is located between the two bathrooms in the foyer of the parish church. This is a great opportunity to teach our children the value of helping those in need a value our Lord made it clear that we should fulfill in the 25th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew. It is also a great opportunity to remind ourselves of this important Christian precept. Our goal here is to change our St. Vladimir family paradigm to I am going to church I need to grab a non-perishable food item and bring it with me. Lets all work hard on that paradigm so that in a small way we are all working together to follow our Lords commandment ...Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto Me.

Special Needs Ministry We Need You! 
28/6/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Inspired by the incredible work of Fr. Vladimir Klimzo in Russia, and with the understanding that here in American the vast majority (perhaps up to 80% according to some studies) of families with special needs children or adult children do not attend church ALTHOUGH THEY WOULD LIKE TO we have established a Special Needs Ministry at St. Vladimirs.

OUR FIRST CYCLE OF SERVICES OF THIS MINISTRY IS SLATED FOR TONIGHT AND TOMORROW!

Join us in providing a spiritual home for those seeking one, but struggling to connect with a parish family! Attend the services. Support those visiting. Help how you can. If we do our best, and we ask the Lord's blessing, we will do well.

Walk of Life 2019 
27/6/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


We have been offered the opportunity to host the Diocesan Cross Procession Walk of Life this Labor Day weekend. And we want to do it! This has always been a positive event for our parish, deanery, and diocese. We have always gotten more out of it as a parish than we have put in. But the timing is rough. This event will happen two weeks before our annual festival. So we need a volunteer to lead this effort someone who is not on the festival committee or a festival lead. Please contact Fr. Gregory right away if you can help. Some things have already been put in place so you wouldnt be starting from scratch!

Here are pictures from previous Walks of Life at St. Vladimirs:

Weekly Financial Update 
26/6/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him... (I Corinthians 16:2)


We present here our weekly collection information, links to our Donation Page, and our Treasurers Corner page.

Two Important pieces of information to remember as you review this data:

1. Income is captured ONLY from regular collections and the Network for Good General Fund/Tithes page. There are other income sources for the parish that are not captured here. We feel it is important to cover our baseline expenses (based on 2018 actual expenses) from regular collections and the General Fund/Tithes income, but we do not do that regularly (thus you will see a lot of red numbers at the weekly collection variance link). Please consider establishing a recurring donation at our General Fund/Tithes page or via bank transfer (contact our Treasurer, Mikhail Fisenkov at treasurer@stvladimiraami.org to learn more about bank transfers) to help us erase those red numbers.

2. Assure that your weekly tithe is provided to your parish even when you are not present by establishing a recurring donation at our General Fund/Tithes page or via bank transfer (contact our Treasurer, Mikhail Fisenkov at treasurer@stvladimiraami.org to learn more about bank transfers).

Our Elderly Parish Family and Students Need Rides to Church 
25/6/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


We do not see our elderly parish family members at church every Sunday. And that is true for some of our students too. The reason for this is: they need rides to church. And they need a little prompting sometimes in this regard since they don't want to be a bother. It is a privilege to serve our our elderly parish family members and students in this way and we need to be quite zealous about it. If you can help organize or participate in this ministry please contact Fr. Gregory. There are not a lot of folks that need rides, but they need to be contacted early in the week to arrange the Sunday ride, assured that they are not bothering anyone, and they need to be picked up in a timely manner on Sunday morning. One person doesn't have to do all this, and frankly speaking, based on where our elderly and students live, it would be impossible for one person to do it all. We need several people to help. Please contact Fr. Gregory to take part in this very honorable activity an activity worth waking up early on Sunday morning to participate in.

Let not one think, my fellow Christian, that only priests and monks need to pray without ceasing and not laymen No, no; every Christian without exception ought to dwell always in prayer.
