Entrance of the Theotokos is this Friday 
3/12/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Please join us Thursday at 6:00 p.m. and Friday at 8:00 a.m. annual feast of the Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple. This is one of the 12 Great Feasts of the Church and one we should try, if at all possible, to participate in. If you cannot come to Vigil or Liturgy please try to join us on one of our live streams.


All are welcome! The services will be inside the church, so we ask that you sign up. This allows us to understand the number of people that will attend since we have limited, physically distanced spaces inside the temple. The link to the sign up sheet can be found on our parish home page. If you have any trouble finding that please email: info@stvladimriaami.org.

First Sunday of the Month Ė Helping You Support Your Parish  
2/12/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Each first Sunday of the month we will have Parish Council members ready to help you during the parish meal. Help you by answering questions you may have about why you should support your parish. Help you by answering questions about how you can support your parish. Help you by assisting you in setting up a recurring donation to support St. Vladimirís if you would like to do so. No one will attack you. :) But if you would like help, or you have questions, we are setting aside this time specifically for this purpose.

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
2/12/20, 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.

For Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

For Children: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Parish Prayer Kit Updated! 
1/12/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Everyone should own a prayer book. We strongly recommend the Jordanville edition, and we have this in our parish kiosk in English and Russian. However, sometimes we don't have a prayer book handy, or sometimes we need practical tools in our "prayer kit". We have added the St. Pachomius rule in Russian. Please check out all the resources on this page!

If you share secretly in the joy of someone you envy, you will be freed from your jealousy; and you will also be freed from your jealousy if you keep silent about the person you envy.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
29/11/20, 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 Ė 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: I Timothy 1:1-7 & Luke 14:12-15
Tuesday: I Timothy 1:8-14 & Luke 14:25-35
Wednesday: I Timothy 1:8-20,2:8-15 & Luke 15:1-10
Thursday: I Timothy 3:1-13 & Luke 16:1-9
Friday: I Timothy 4:4-8,16 & Luke 15:15-18,17:1-4
Saturday: Galatians 3:8-12 & Luke 9:57-62

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