Parish Background

St. Anthony the Great Orthodox Church is a parish of the Orthodox Church in America. Priests from the OCA served in the Bozeman area for over five years before the community received Mission status in 1999. Prior to that, the people either drove two hours to Billings or one hour to Butte for services.

From the summer of 2001 to spring of 2012, Fr. Peter Tobias served as its priest. Fr. Damian Kuolt served the parish as Priest in Charge during 2012 and early 2013. In June 2013, Fr. David Morrison arrived in Bozeman with Mtka. Photini and their three children to serve St. Anthony parish.

As the Mission grew, the parishioners purchased land west of Bozeman, paid for it over a few years, building its first worship space in 2014. With its new church building and the increase in members, this year St. Antohny will graduate from mission status to become a church. The parish includes individuals and families from various backgrounds, mostly converts.
