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.
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 20:2

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 got off to a gratifying start. Currently, we have over 90 angels who, in the last quarter ending September 30, donated $16,500 to our Cathedral. What awesome commitment! These parishioners are striving to uphold the legacy of our founders, who scraped together quarters and dollar bills to build this beautiful Cathedral for their heirs. The number of angels will always fluctuate; for example, we have lost five senior citizens who had made generous monthly pledges right at the beginning of the pledge drive. May their memories be eternal.
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.
On Friday, July 28, a special meeting was held to vote on specific bylaw revisions. Please click on the links here for the revised bylaws. Many thanks to parishioners who attended this important meeting and contributed to the decisions made.

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.
