Ecumenism: the Truth as One

Al Majkrzak was ordained as an Episcopal Priest in 1979. Since that time he has served as a parish priest in California, Wisconsin, Connecticut, and Illinois. He retired in 2006 and then re-retired at the end of 2017, having served as pastor of Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Wisconsin Dells for the last two and a half years. His personal ecumenical experiences include his ministry at Holy Cross, a congregation which shares a building with the Dells, Delton United Methodist Church. He and Karen, his spouse, are the parents of three sons, one of whom is a priest and monk of the Orthodox Church. Al believes strongly in ecumenism and lives that out as an oblate of Holy Wisdom Monastery and a member of Sunday Assembly.
