Welcome to the website of Russian Orthodox parish in Madison

A Russian Orthodox Mission was started in Madison in 1950 and existed for 18 years. It was located in the Greek Orthodox church. A Russian priest came from Milwaukee every other Saturday and conducted services.

With the blessing of the Most Reverend Peter, bishop of Cleveland, a Russian mission is opening in this same Greek church and the rector of Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church Abroad in Milwaukee, Archpriest Vasyl Kuzmych, will nurture it.

Dear Father Michael, Father Vasily and all parishioners of the Russian Mission and the Greek Orthodox Church,
A year ago, on October 18, 2017, our beloved daughter Natasha left us forever. She was only 39 years old. On the day of her memory Divine Liturgies will be held in many churches of Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Germany, Italy, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Israel, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Memorial service on the Day of Remembrance of Natasha will be held at the Cathedral of the Intercession of the Mother of God (Chicago, Illinois), at the Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church in Milwaukee, at the Russian Orthodox Mission in Madison (10/20/2018 - Saturday morning)  and at the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church (10/21/2018 - Sunday morning) at 11 N 7th St. Madison, WI 53704.
We, Natalia's parents, invite everyone who knew our daughter, worked with her, knew her socially, knew her family, to honor the bright memory of her.
Warm thanks to you all and a low bow for your prayers and all-around support. May God protect you and your families, may fate be favorable to you.
After Divine Liturgy (10/20/2018 - Saturday morning), a memorial dinner will be held at the Russian Orthodox Mission in Madison.
Respectfully, Maria and Alexander
