40 Consecutive Liturgy Commemoration Now Available 
6/10/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Many people ask us for 40-day commemorations at the Divine Liturgy. This practice remembering someone who is ill or who has died for 40 consecutive days at the Divine Liturgy is known as Sorokoust. We do not serve Liturgy every day at St. Vladimir's. But we did serve 122 Liturgies last year. Thank God we have the opportunity to serve Liturgy often. We provide a sort of modified Sorokoust for our parish family. We can commemorate your friends or loved ones at 40 consecutive Liturgies. This will take more than 40 days, but nonetheless it will indeed be helpful for those who are commemorated. Please arrange these special commemorations with Fr. Gregory or with Albina Seraphimovna at the parish kiosk. There is no cost for these commemorations, but it is common to give a donation in thanksgiving for the prayers. The amount is completely up to those arranging the Sorokoust and, as with other special services at St. Vladimir's, should be based on your financial situation. If God has blessed you with much you should give much. If He has blessed you with little, you should give little. Please see Fr. Gregory with questions about this or any other spiritual issue.

Volunteer Opportunities - Helping Fr. Gregory 
29/9/17, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

As most of our parishioners are aware, Fr. Gregory has several responsibilities in addition to being our parish Rector. He is the Dean of the Michigan Parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, the Dean of our Diocesan Seminary, and the Secretary of the the Diocesan Council. All these things are getting done, but with some help they could be done much better than they are. Presently there are two volunteer opportunities to help Fr. Gregory with these duties:

1. Help with Audio/Visual at St. Vladimir's: we are presently streaming audio of our major Divine Services. This is great! But we would like to revive our "Sound of the Parish" blog. That means we need one or two people to see to it that recorded Divine Services are edited and posted there. We would also like to do more video and still photography. Again - that means we need one or two people to help out.

2. Matthew 25 Leaders: Please have a look at this blog entry:

http://blogtushka.blogspot.com/2017/06/ ... ponse.html

We need people to fill these leadership positions! We have some - we need more. Please help if you can!

3. Church School Volunteers: after the Divine Services the Church School is the most important ministry of our parish. Archbishop Peter has blessed the Church School - all children and parents should be participating in this crucial effort. You needn't be a theologian to be a teacher or a volunteer - but you have to be willing to learn and to work hard to make our school successful. :)

Please contact Fr. Gregory if you would like to volunteer or if you would like to learn more. Each of us has a ministry. Perhaps one of the above opportunities is yours? If not - and that is totally understandable - challenge yourself. What IS your ministry? Please contact Fr. Gregory if you would like to discuss this or any other aspect of our faith.

Sign up to Volunteer to Keep St. Vladimir's Open Every Day! 
27/9/17, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We would like to arrange for St. Vladimir's to be open daily for certain set hours. We would then advertise this opportunity on our web site and elsewhere so that people would know they could come to the church during that time, pray, light candles, and otherwise seek the solace that can only be found in God's house. This is especially important for those who are not integrated into our parish community or who are not yet churched. In other words, THIS IS A MINISTRY - A SPIRITUAL GOOD WORK FOR THE SAKE OF CHRIST - A MISSIONARY ACTIVITY, and one that will help new people draw nearer to God and their salvation. But this will also help our present parishioners as well - since they too will have an opportunity to come to church even daily if they would like to do that. And frankly speaking, YOU TOO will benefit from being in the Lord's House more often!

Please note that we will have at least two St. Vladimir's parishioners present during these open hours. That is - no one will be at the church alone.
