Orthodox couple celebrates 70th wedding anniversary

On May 31st, Bronnie and Annabelle Stroud, parishioners at St. Matthew Orthodox Church in Green Bay, celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. The milestone was celebrated by the parish and family, but also was documented by the Green Bay Press Gazette.

A 70-year marriage built on faith

When he leads the Sunday morning liturgy, Father Maximus Cabey needs only to gaze out to his congregation to find inspiration in the flesh.

“It’s being faithful through the thick and thin of life,” said Cabey, the rector at St. Matthew Orthodox Church in Green Bay.

That is how Cabey sees Bronnie and Annabelle Stroud. Not only are the Strouds regular attendees at Cabey’s church, but they also have the unusual distinction of being married 70 years.

Wishing the happy couple many more happy & blessed years!

Memory eternal – Archpriest Dr. Michael Herrick

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.
