Attached is a "Family Guide to Holy Week at Home" provided by the Diocese. It provides prayers, videos and children's activities!
Father will bless his family's Pascha basket after Divine Liturgy on Easter/Pascha. To bless your basket, recite the attached prayers as you sprinkle Holy Water on your Paschal foods.
May we be well & safe as we journey to Pascha and the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Due to the ongoing situation with the Coronavirus, our diocese has instructed that all services be conducted without the congregation in attendance.
Attendance at services is cancelled until further notice.
Please continue to pray from home!
Livestreams of services, prayers & more are available at OCA.org under Coronavirus Resources. Then scroll down to Liturgical and Spiritual Resouces. You can also directly access the OCA main page by scrolling down on this page.
You can also visit our St. Vladimir’s Facebook page to watch our services live or watch them anytime under our new website tab-Church Service Videos.
Please stay well & safe! St. Vladimir church looks forward to when we can all be together again.
☦️ God Bless ☦️
