The Protection of our Most Holy Lady Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary
Fall Festival 2023: Saturday, October 21st
Please support our fundraising campaign as we raise $49,000 for Phase III of our Iconography Project. This phase will focus on the large wall spaces on each side of the church directly above the Iconography of the Saints. Once completed we will have Iconography of our Lord's Resurrection on one side with the Lord's Nativity adorning the other side of the church. In addition, large icons of the Feeding of the Five Thousand and of the Sermon on the Mount will grace the balcony spaces of the Church. Other Icons are also being prepared allowing us to finish the iconography inside our church building. Your donation will help make this possible . Please mail your check to the Church at 607 Ravenswood Drive, Green Bay, WI 54302 or by going online here.
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.
