St Matthew Orthodox Church
Green Bay, Wisconsin
Welcome!

St Matthew Orthodox Church is an OCA (Orthodox Church in America) parish and is part of the OCA Diocese of the Midwest. We serve Green Bay, the Fox Valley, and Door County.

We are a diverse community of Orthodox Christians and seekers from northeast Wisconsin.

The Orthodox Church humbly claims to be the One Church of Christ, founded on the apostolic witness to our Lord, born on the Day of Pentecost, and for 2,000 years making known to men, women, and children the path to salvation through repentance and faith in Christ. The Orthodox Church is not a denomination (for it predates Protestantism by 1,500 years) nor is it “the Eastern branch of the Roman Catholic Church.” It is, quite simply, the Church of Christ.

Iconography Project

IN THE NEWS

RUSSIAN ICONOGRAPHER TO BEAUTIFY GREEN BAY ORTHODOX CHURCH.

Green Bay, Wisconsin -  May 18, 2018 -  The congregation of Saint Matthew Orthodox church in East Green Bay has nearly completed the installation of icons by the Russian born artist Dmitry Shkolnik. The icons were started by Dmitry at his studio in California and have now been brought to St Matthew where the final details will be painted. This phase of the project took about two weeks to complete. Orthodox churches are traditionally beautified by hand painted Iconography which ‘is an essential expression of beauty and revelation in worship and faith’ says Father Eugene Wozniak, the priest at St. Matthew. Our community is excited to start this project.

Dmitry Shkolnik was born in Moscow, Russia in 1960. While studying in high school, he developed a keen interest in Russian religious art. In 1981 he immigrated to the United States with his family. He enrolled in the Theological Seminary at The Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY in 1983.  Since 1981 Dmitry Shkolnik has written over 3,000 icons, completed more than 20 iconostasis, and painted numerous church frescos, murals and wall ornamentations. He is an active member of the International Union of Artists and has collaborated with some of the most noted Russian iconographers.

The Mission of The Orthodox Church in America, the local autocephalous Orthodox Christian Church, is to be faithful in fulfilling the commandment of Christ to “Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

Saint Matthew Orthodox Church is part of the Diocese of the Midwest, which is presided over by The Right Reverend Paul (Gassios), Bishop of Chicago. Our mission is bringing the joy of Christ's resurrection to those who have never heard the Good News, and to strengthen and encourage the faithful who reside within the Green Bay vicinity.

The Holy Scripture is a collection of books written over multiple centuries by those inspired by God to do so. It is the primary witness to the Orthodox Christian faith, within Holy Tradition and often described as its highest point. It was written by the prophets and apostles in human language, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and collected, edited, and canonized by the Church.

Daily Readings >

Holiness or sainthood is a gift (charisma) given by God to man, through the Holy Spirit. Man's effort to become a participant in the life of divine holiness is indispensable, but sanctification itself is the work of the Holy Trinity, especially through the sanctifying power of Jesus Christ, who was incarnate, suffered crucifixion, and rose from the dead, in order to lead us to the life of holiness, through the communion with the Holy Spirit.
