Spring and Summer Brings Missionaries to our Doors - Share the Orthodox Faith 
8/7/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As the weather improves missionaries from various religions tend to appear at our homes. At St. Vladimir's we have many pamphlets and booklets on the Orthodox Faith that are free for anyone to take. These can be found at the back of the church near the main entrance doors. Please feel free to take information home with you to share with the missionaries that come to visit you. It seems only fair that if they want us to take their information that we offer them information about Orthodox Christianity. Many missionaries have found the Orthodox Church in this way. No one is mandated to do this, but if you would like to you are welcome to. Please feel free to contact Fr. Gregory with questions in this regard.

Lampadas above the Royal Doors - Please be Attentive 
5/7/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We ask all to be attentive to the system we have devised to help folks know when they can and when they cannot move about during the Divine Services to light candles, etc. Even as we ask all to be attentive we also ask all to be loving, and if someone clearly is not aware that we have reached a time in the Divine Service when we should be still that we share that information with them lovingly and in a way that will not cause embarrassment. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns. See flyer here - printable version (legal size):

Weekly Educational Offering 
5/7/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults. 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 children, from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups):

Glorification of St. Mardarije is July 14-16, 2017 
4/7/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The glorification of St. Mardarije, the first Serbian bishop of America, will take place on July 14-16, 2017 in Libertyville, IL (just north of Chicago). In researching the life of this remarkable saint we realized something truly awesome: St. Mardarije reposed in Ann Arbor! Yes - in our home town! What a huge blessing for us that our humble region was sanctified by such a righteous one's translation into the Heavenly Kingdom! Much more about this certainly to come - this fact is sure to have a huge impact on our parish family, but let's not let the glorification go by without a strong representation from our parish! Just a 5-hour drive from St. Vladimir's to Libertyville! We are planning a pilgrimage group - please contact me if you would like to participate! Fr. Gregory

A short life of St. Mardarije can be found here:
