St Matthew Orthodox Church
Green Bay, Wisconsin
Waupaca Area Outreach
St. Macrina Chapel, Waupaca, WI
In December 2022, our parish began an outreach effort to offer services in the Waupaca - Stevens Point (Portage County) - Waushara County area. In December 2023, His Eminence Archbishop Daniel established it as "The Chapel of Saint Macrina the Younger, Waupaca, WI" as a dependency of Saint Matthew Church in Green Bay.
 
The chapel is named for Saint Macrina "the Younger", also known as "the Teacher", who was the older sister of Saint Basil the Great and Saint Gregory of Nyssa. You can read her life on the OCA website here.
 
One Sunday a month, Deacon Spyridon Roegner, Matushka Photini, and their family kindly offer their home, about 12 miles south of Waupaca, for the celebration of Hours and Typika. The Hours begin at 9:30 AM with Typika immediately following. (The exact dates and time of these services can be confirmed on the homepage of our website). Once every two or three months, a Divine Liturgy is held on a Saturday.

The Roegner's home address is W4863 Park Place, Saxeville, WI 54981 (The city may also show as "Waupaca" or "Pine River", it is all the same). The home is on the north shore of Long Lake in northern Waushara County. It is the only brick house on the street. Parking is available in multiple locations near the house. Please see the photograph below which shows the main parking area about 100 feet up from the house.
 
Please reach out to Dn. Spyridon at his email address for more information if you are interested in attending. Thank you!

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.
