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.

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.
