Holy Fire Arrives in the Deanery 4/27/17 
27/4/17, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The Holy Fire from Jerusalem, the same Holy Fire that descends on the Holy Sepulcher there every Holy Saturday, will reach the Michigan Deanery at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 27. Our St. Vladimir parish will receive the flame, and after lighting all the lamps in the parish church, a Thanksgiving Moleben will be held. Following the moleben the faithful will have the opportunity to venerate the icons of the Lord's Resurrection and of Thomas Sunday, and access the flame to bring home for themselves if this is desired. It is important that those who wish to bring the Fire home bring a suitably safe lantern or other vessel in which to transport the flame in their vehicles. All are welcome.

Michigan Deanery General Unction is April 4, 2017 
27/3/17, 12:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

With the blessing of Archbishop Peter, the annual General Unction service for our Michigan Deanery will be held at St. Vladimir Church at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4. The address for St. Vladimir Church is: 9900 Jackson Rd., Dexter, MI 48130.

Please note that Unction is a Sacrament of the Holy Church. All are welcome to attend the service, but only Orthodox Christians may be anointed with the Holy Oil at the conclusion of the service. The Sacrament of Unction is tied very closely to both repentance and healing, and thus, although this sacrament is generally reserved for those who are very sick (to aid in their healing or their prayerful departure into the next life) the practice is to hold this service one time per year during Great Lent to strengthen all of us on our path towards spiritual healing through repentance – the path we tread each year during Great Lent. IT IS IMPORTANT that you prepare yourself by confessing before this sacrament. Children who do not participate in the sacrament of Confession (those generally less than 7 years old) are not anointed at the General Unction service unless suffering from a serious illness. Please contact Fr. Gregory for more details.

По благословению архиепископа Петра, ежегодное общее Соборование Мичиганского благочиния состоится в Свято-Владимирском храме в 6:00 часов вечера в вторник, 4 апреля. Адрес Свято-Владимирского храма: 9900 Jackson Rd., Dexter, MI 48130.

Следует отметить, что Соборование (Елеосвящение) является одним из Церковных Таинств. На службу приглашаются все, однако елеем в конце службы могут быть помазаны только православные христиане. Таинство Соборования очень тесно связано с покаянием и исцелением и, хотя оно обычно совершается только для очень больных (ради их выздоровления или же молитвенного перехода к жизни вечной), существует обычай совершать эту службу раз в год во время Великого Поста, чтобы укрепить нас на пути к духовному исцелению через покаяние – пути, на который мы ежегодно вступаем во время Великого Поста. ВАЖНО подготовиться к таинству, предварительно исповедовавшись. Дети, не подходящие к Таинству Исповеди (обычно младше 7 лет) не помазываются во время общего Соборования, за исключением серьезно больных. Обратитесь к о. Григорию, если вам нужна дополнительная информация.
