A longtime Episcopalian priest, Archpriest Dr. Michael Herrick converted to Orthodoxy, and, after his ordination as an Orthodox priest, became the first resident priest at St. Matthew Orthodox Church in Green Bay, where he served for over a decade. In addition to his pastoral ministry, he worked as a prison psychologist.
Fr. Herrick fell asleep in the Lord on 29 March 2015. He was 85 years old. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in Father Michael’s name and may be sent to Saint Matthew Church, 607 Ravenswood Drive, Green Bay, WI 54302.
