Posted by Fr. Gregory

Fr. Gregory will be on pilgrimage with Archbishop Peter in the Holy Land September 3-12, 2018. Often parishioners would like to make donations to the monasteries in the Holy Land and ask for prayers for themselves and/or their loved ones. Please email names of your friends and loved ones that you would like commemorated in the Holy Land (distinguish between Orthodox and Non-Orthodox please) to Fr. Gregory (ogrisha@stvladimiraami.org) by September 1, 2018. Donations to support the monasteries and holy sites in the Holy Land should be given to Fr. Gregory at your earliest convenience, but not later than September 2 since he flies to Europe that evening.

Help us Reach our Parish School Goal! 
28/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Thank you to everyone who participated in our parish extraordinary meeting on Sunday, August 26! At this meeting we decided how we would move forward with the building of our parish school: by September 23, 2018 we will need to have $1200/month in pledges set for five years OR $70,000 in our Parish School bank account. So we have lots of work to do! Please help! This is a time sensitive situation if we push further out than September 23 it is virtually certain that we will miss this years construction season, and that will make it impossible to begin instruction in 2019.

1. Please establish a pledge or make a donation today. Visit the fund raising page below or reach out to Fr. Gregory with questions

2. Talk to your friends. We can easily reach that $1200/month if we all chip in just a little! And if we add like-minded friends and loved ones who support Orthodox Christian education we can far surpass that goal!

3. Ask questions! Would you like to learn more about the Ann Arbor Orthodox Christian Academy? Send an email to Fr. Gregory, call him, or see him in church. He or any member of the School Steering Committee can answer your questions.

4. Volunteer! Join the School Steering Committee! We need lots of hands to help with this pleasant and much needed work.

This is a great challenge for our parish family, but a completely attainable one if we all pitch in and help just a bit. Please join our school team and help us surpass our goal!

Festival Sponsorship How YOU can Help! 
27/8/18, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please spread the word about festival sponsorships to your doctor, your dentist, your hair stylist, your dog groomer, your grass cutter, your water softener folks, etc., etc. YOU spend money (hundreds or thousands of dollars) at these businesses each year. Most of these businesses would be HAPPY to sponsor our festival since you have established a relationship already. The only way they will not sponsor the festival? If YOU dont ask! So ask! :)

Share the information with them below - and consider sponsoring the festival yourself - every contribution helps us succeed!

SPONSOR THE FESTIVAL NOW!

Monday First Things: Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
27/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

If the poison of pride is swelling up in you, turn to the Eucharist; and that Bread, Which is your God humbling and disguising Himself, will teach you humility. If the fever of selfish greed rages in you, feed on this Bread; and you will learn generosity. If the cold wind of coveting withers you, hasten to the Bread of Angels; and charity will come to blossom in your heart. If you feel the itch of intemperance, nourish yourself with the Flesh and Blood of Christ, Who practiced heroic self-control during His earthly life; and you will become temperate. If you are lazy and sluggish about spiritual things, strengthen yourself with this heavenly Food; and you will grow fervent. Lastly, if you feel scorched by the fever of impurity, go to the banquet of the Angels; and the spotless Flesh of Christ will make you pure and chaste.

10% of Festival Proceeds go to Charity 
25/8/18, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We ask each of our parishioners to make a tithe to the parish.

Some thoughts on tithing from an Orthodox point of view can be found here and may be helpful:

https://blogs.ancientfaith.com/roadsfromemmaus/2015/10/27/6-reasons-why-tithing-is-good-for-an-orthodox-parish/

You can find more in this article, which is on our parish web site:

http://stvladimiraami.org/pamphlets/syn ... rdship.pdf

It only makes sense if we ask our parishioners to tithe that we would arrange for 10% of our festival proceeds would go to charities other than St. Vladimir's (10% of our regular collections go to the diocese by the way). So - when you volunteer for the festival we want you to know that you are supporting St. Vladimir's - but other charitable organizations as well!
