Cross Procession for Peace is September 17 
9/9/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

On the Saturday that we had originally scheduled our Russian Festival for this year (Saturday, September 17) we will hold a Cross Procession and prayers for peace in Ukraine. There are two options to participate in this action for peace:

1. Join our Cross Procession that day. All are welcome, but there will be no politics AT ALL. We will walk and pray together under the protection of the Cross according to the established Orthodox tradition, asking the Lord to grant peace in Ukraine. The procession begins at 10:00 a.m. More information and a sign up can be found at the link below. Please sign up if you intend to participate. This helps us plan first aid, water, and other necessary material things to make sure all can participate safely:

SIGN UP FOR CROSS PROCESSION

2. Join us for our special prayer service (moleben) for peace after the Cross Procession at St. Vladimirís. All are welcome, but there will be no politics AT ALL. We are interested only in the Lordís help Ė because clearly only the Lord can stop the war, and human wisdom has done nothing positive in this regard thus far. The special prayer for peace will take place at St. Vladimirís about 1:00 p.m. That is, when the Cross Procession ends. Doors will be open beginning at 12:00 p.m. for those who would like to pray quietly in the church and wait for the Cross Procession to return.

Even if you cannot join us, please read this prayer for peace in Ukraine and America at 1:00 p.m. that day Ė this is about the time we will be reading this same prayer at St. Vladimirís:

This Sunday is a Special Day (and Saturday is too) 
8/9/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

This Sunday we commemorate the Beheading of St. John the Baptist. This is not one of the twelve great feasts of the Church, but liturgically it is essentially identical to one of the twelve great feasts. For that reason we will add a Litya (blessing of 5 loaves) to the Vigil on Saturday night. Weather permitting we will serve the Litya outside (before the main doors of the church). DO NOT MISS this very interesting, edifying, and educational service! And please remember that this Sunday is a fast day, one of the rare one-day fasts of the Church. This fast is instituted in commemoration of the day: the Beheading of St. John the Baptist.

The single best way for us to pray for our friends and loved ones is to arrange for them to be remembered at the Divine Liturgy. We serve approximately 130 Divine Liturgies per year, so your friends or loved ones will be prayed for approximately ever three days as a rule at St. Vladimir's.

Beginning on September 1/14, 2022 we will offer a subscription service for the commemoration of your friends and loved ones at our parish. The details can be found at the link below. Please contact Fr. Gregory or Deacon Dmitri Mihaliov with questions or to arrange the commemoration of your friends and loved ones using this analog technology (names written in commemoration books or pieces of paper):

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
7/9/22, 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 childrenís 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.

A2OCA Ė We Need You All & We Need You Now! 
5/9/22, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We all, to a greater or lesser extent, support the various ministries in our parish. But the ministry that we are most focused on now, our Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy, has struggled greatly to get our parish family to engage and help. Venerable Dorotheos of Gaza, one of the most important monastic fathers of the Church, writes: ďIf a man is doing something according to God, trial of some kind will come upon him, for trial and temptation either preceed or follow all good. Neither is it sure that the thing is happening according to God, unless it is proved so by trials and temptations.Ē By this measure it is SUPER CLEAR that this project is according to God. And let us thank God for that!

But we also need to work to overcome the trials and temptations as a parish family, not just sit back and watch them happen. This school is OURS Ė not someone elseís. Given that, I am calling us all to redouble our efforts at seeing our school project succeed! First and foremost by prayer. Entreat the Lord for His continued blessings! And entreat Him to continue to send workers to His harvest! And second, decide today that you are going to become one of those workers yourself! Third, please support the school as you can financially. Note that the money part is THIRD! There are other things that are more important that anyone can do and which everyone should do, beginning with prayer.

BECOME A WORKER AT THE LORDíS HARVEST TODAY! Share the flyers below with two families you know who have children of the appropriate age group AND ask them to share the flyers with two families they know. People cannot send their children to the school if they do not know about it. You know people Ė share with those people you know today!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers

Condemn youself and try to correct yourself. But we cannot correct ourselves if we do not begin with self-reproach (and not reproaching others) and with forcing ourselves to be obedient to our elders.
