Liturgy on your Name's Day? 
26/8/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It is a true blessing to have the opportunity to partake of Holy Communion on one's patron saint's day. Fr. Gregory is willing to consider serving Liturgy on your name's day – yes YOURS. If you would be willing to attend the Divine Services on the eve of the feast and on the feast itself, and to partake of Holy Communion on that day please contact him. This is not a guarantee that we can do this – but we can certainly try. But please don't tell him a week before. Something like six months before would be better – three months before as a minimum. See Fr. Gregory with questions or email ogrisha@stvladimiraami.org!

Members – Pick Your Duty 
25/8/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

At the annual meeting on Sunday, May 16 we explained that it is understood and expected that each member of our parish would have at least one duty that they participate in IN ADDITION to attending the Divine Services. This ranges from baking prosphora, to picking sticks in the cemetery, to shoveling snow, and more! If we all do our little part we will equitably care for the parish the Lord has entrusted to us, and we will not kill off those who do these things if no one else does. It is wise for us to preserve the leadership of our parish, but it is also moral for each parish member to do their part. So please pitch in, and if you have not chosen your duty yet please contact our new parish Secretary, Marina Edwards. If she doesn’t hear from you she will reach out to you soon. You can email her at info@stvladimiraami.org or see her in church. Thank you diligently following through on this program. More involvement in the parish promotes persistence in being part of the parish family – and it keeps a few people from doing everything. With God’s help we will make our metaphor of “family” even more real in our parish by working together for God’s glory in this way!

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
25/8/21, 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 children’s 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)

We all have friends and loved ones that we want to introduce to the Church. But some people are shy – they might not want to visit right away or talk to one of our priests. For this reason we have provide the resources on our Catechism Resources page: books, articles, videos, and audio files. Please share the link with friend and loved ones – and please feel free to access those resources for your own edification too!

Covid Returns – Parish Advice 
20/8/21, 03:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As of August 18, 2021 Michigan has attained the highest coronavirus transmission level according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). At this level masks are recommended for indoor activities, both for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. As we have done from the beginning of the pandemic, we will align our parish advice with the CDC advice: we recommend (but do not mandate) masks for indoor activities beginning August 20, 2021. Thankfully this less than absolute rule will give all – both those who choose to wear masks and those who do not – the opportunity to exhibit the virtues of patience and empathy for those who make a choice opposite of our personal choice. We must strive not to simply be proficient at hiding our disgust with others who do not share our “wisdom”, but rather truly understand and embrace the decisions of others in this regard. There is not right or wrong in a recommendation, but there is evil and good in the way we react to others. Let us strive for good during this time when we are being given the blessing to fight our inclination to judge others and embrace patience, empathy, and love.
