Welcome to St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral

Founded in 1912, St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral is the spiritual home to a large congregation in the Milwaukee area and dedicated to the patron saint of the Serbian people, Saint Sava.

Our parochial school, St. Sava Orthodox School, was established in 1996 and provides children with an Orthodox Christian-based education for students ages preschool through eighth grade. To learn more, we invite you to visit our school’s website.

Our Mission

The mission of St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Cathedral is to preserve, practice and proclaim the Holy Orthodox Faith with adherence to the teachings of Jesus Christ our Lord, the Apostles and the Holy Scripture; to serve our parishioners and our community; to grow our parish and welcome all who seek to partake in the spiritual and cultural offerings of the Orthodox faith. We will manage our parish in a manner that will ensure its financial strength and stability for all future generations.

Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the Church of God, which he bought with his own blood. – Acts 20:28 .

Hristos Voskrese!  Christ is Risen!

Vaistinu Voskrese!  Indeed He is Risen!

  • The church board voted to begin one Divine Liturgy starting May 21st through September 3rd, at 9:00 AM.

Monthly Pledge Update

Knowing our fixed monthly expenses has allowed us to look at ways to make sure we can meet those costs.  Our campaign to ask parishioners to make a monthly donation to our Cathedral is getting off to a gratifying start. Currently, we have over 90 responses with a total amount of $6800 monthly.

If you have not yet, won’t you consider becoming an Angel to St. Sava Cathedral?  Here are the ranks of angels to choose from:

$1000 (Seraphim)     $500 (Cherubim)     $250 (Throne)     $200 (Dominion)

$150 (Virtue)     $100 (Power)     $75 (Principality)     $50 (Archangel)     $25 (Angel)

It cannot be stated enough that every contribution has value.  Should you choose less than $25 on a monthly basis, you will still be contributing to the operating expenses of our beloved cathedral.

Anyone interested in holding a Sunday picnic should please contact the church office to learn available dates and rental charges. The office is open M-F 10AM -3PM and the number is 414-545-4080. Don’t miss out on your preferred date!

Any organization or individual who is planning an event at the church should send the information to the church office, who will forward it to the communications team. We will put it on the church web site and social media to increase visibility, awareness, and attendance for your event.

Would You Like Information Via Email?

Over the next few months the board will begin to use email more often to get news to our parishioners. If you’d like to receive information this way please give us your email address so you may be included. Provide it by email to Boris Veleusic, Membership Secretary, at borisveleusic@yahoo.com or on paper to any board member. Thank you.

Sunday of Orthodoxy at our Cathedral!

On Sunday, March 5, 2017, our parish was honored to host our fellow Orthodox clergy and their parishioners for the Sunday of Orthodoxy celebration.  Children joined the clergy for the beautiful procession around the inside of the church, with all participants holding an icon.  The Stevan Sijacki Choir sang beautiful responses, making this unique service one to remember.  Thanks to all who donated posno refreshments and appetizers for the reception afterward.
