Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
6/10/21, 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 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 Youth: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy On-Line Program Registration Open 
5/10/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

When we began our school project we promised that we would begin instruction in the fall of 2021. We couldnt have foreseen the pandemic then, and the huge complication that would provide to our building project. But despite all that, we opened registration on Sunday, September 26 for our on-line offerings for this year. You can learn more here please spread the word and/or consider this for your K-2 children if what you are doing this fall for school has not worked out well for your family:


Starting in Fall of 2022 we will offer in person instruction, but since the pandemic made that impossible this year, we are beginning with on-line instruction!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
4/10/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

In all things that come upon me I never desire to run around in quest of human wisdom, but I always act with the small power I have on whatever it is, and at the same time leave the whole thing to God.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
3/10/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Galatians 4:28-5:10 & Luke 3:19-22
Tuesday: Galatians 5:11-21 & Luke 3:23-4:1
Wednesday: Galatians 6:2-10 & Luke 4:1-15
Thursday: Ephesians 1:1-9 & Luke 4:16-22
Friday: Ephesians 1:7-17 & Luke 4:22-30
Saturday: I Corinthians 10:23-28 & Luke 4:31-36

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.
