Synaxis of the Holy Unmercinaries is this Sunday 
15/11/19, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


This Sunday marks the annual feast of all the Holy Unmercinaries. The most famous of these is the Great Martyr Panteliemon, but there are many more saints who served humanity in the name of Christ by healing those suffering from physical (and often spiritual diseases) without accepting any remuneration for their efforts. They understood that they could heal only by the power of God, which was freely given to them. This feast day marks the patron feast of all health care workers, of which we have many in our parish. All who work in this profession are called upon to prepare themselves to partake of Holy Communion this Sunday by attending the Vigil on Saturday evening, receiving the mystery of Confession, and reading their pre-Communion prayers. More information on how to prepare for Holy Communion can be found here:

CONFESSION AND COMMUNION AT ST. VLADIMIR'S


Congratulations to all our health care workers on the feast of the patron saints of their ministry/profession!

Gregory is here to serve our parish family just as Christ came to minister so too is this the calling of the parish priest. You can reach Fr.

Silence in Church Please 
12/11/19, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

It is important that we make an effort a real effort to refrain from speaking in church. We have gotten a bit lax about this lately and the timing is not good. Archbishop Peter will be visiting soon and he will most certainly correct this inappropriate behavior if we do not correct it ourselves. And we will like it a lot less if he feels the need to do this than if we learn to do this on our own. If one absolutely must have a conversation during the time of the Divine Services this should be done either:

1. In the kiosk area IN VERY HUSHED TONES. The glass doors are by no means sound proof. We are failing quite terribly here. The Parish Council will discuss this at the next meeting and measures will be taken to cut down on the cacophony coming from behind the glass doors during the Divine Liturgy.

2. Outside

3. Most appropriately, unless the conversation involves a life or death situation: at the meal after the Divine Liturgy

4. We ask parents that if they bring toys for their children that these be soft toys that to do not make noise when dropped on the floor or on the benches.

Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or concerns.

Divine Liturgy Explained 
9/11/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The Divine Service we attend most often is the Divine Liturgy. We know it, but do we know it? The better we understand the Divine Liturgy the more we will engage in this "work of the people", and the more we will get from it. Or perhaps better put, the more it will transform us. And since we are seeking to be transformed into the children of God, should we not take the time to delve more deeply into the Divine Liturgy - the most theologically significant Divine Service? That is a purely rhetorical question of course, since the answer must be "yes"! The article below is a classic of the 20th century, written by one of the most influential theologians of that time. That time was not that long ago - and this article is well, well worth the read!
