St. Ignatius of Antioch Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church serves the Madison, Wisconsin area. Our membership includes Orthodox Christians of Middle Eastern, Greek, Russian, Coptic, Serbian and other ethnic backgrounds, as well as many who have come from Protestant and Catholic backgrounds. It is a youthful and dynamic parish which prays, serves the local community and socializes together.
Our Divine Services are all in English and sung a cappella. Our Sunday Divine Liturgy begins at 10:00am and is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes long. There is a luncheon pot-luck coffee hour immediately following Divine Liturgy where all families and guests are encouraged to enjoy a light meal and, more importantly, share in fellowship.
For first time visitors to the Orthodox Church a good service to attend is the Saturday evening Great Vespers starting at 5:00pm (about 45 minutes long). Here one will hear the beautiful melodies of the Byzantine and Russian traditions, prayers of petition, psalmody, and seasonal topics of celebration. Inquirer’s Class is generally held every other week at 6:00 pm, after Great Vespers (check calendar for exceptions). This informal Q/A is a great opportunity to meet our priest, ask questions, and meet Orthodox Christians from the parish and other inquirers.
Our general schedule of services is as follows:
Sunday Matins – 9:00AM*
Sunday Divine Liturgy – 10:00AM*
Saturday Great Vespers – 5:30PM*
Saturday Confessions – 6:30PM
Weekday Liturgy – As scheduled*
*Please be sure to look at the calendar for exceptions.
