Welcome!

 

Holy Theophany Church, a Mission of the Orthodox Church in America

We welcome all visitors to our church, which as St John Chrysostom said, is a spiritual hospital:

The Church is a hospital, and not a courtroom, for souls. She does not condemn on behalf of sins, but grants remission of sins.

Nothing is so joyous in our life as the thanksgiving that we experience in the Church. In the Church, the joyful sustain their joy.

In the Church, those worried acquire merriment, and those saddened, joy.

In the Church, the troubled find relief, and the heavy-laden, rest. ~ St John Chrysostom

About HTC

Holy Theophany Orthodox Church, a Mission of the OCAA group of faithful gathered in a local Williams Bay bookstore in the Fall of 2007, moving to the local Elementary School, where services were held every other Sunday. On April 6, 2009, the Orthodox Community of Lake Geneva was granted Chapel Status under the patronage of the Feast of Holy Theophany by Archbishop Job of blessed memory. The Chapel was an outreach of Sts. Cyril and Methodius Orthodox Church in Milwaukee. Over time, membership has increased and is growing.  With the grace of God on September 1, 2012 the community moved into its own permanent location.  Since then, services are held every Sunday at 10:00am​​.

 

On April 1, 2021 we were elevated to mission status by His Eminence, Archbishop Paul. We are diverse community welcoming all who wish to worship in the Orthodox Christian tradition and share the mission of proclaiming the saving message of Jesus Christ. Services are in English.

 

We are a worshipping community of the Orthodox Church of America. We are in the Diocese of Chicago and the Midwest under the omophorion of His Grace, Bishop Daniel.
