Saint Michael the Archangel Orthodox Church is a local parish of the Midwest Diocese, under Bishop Paul of Chicago, Bishop of the autocephalous Orthodox Church in America, which is part of the worldwide communion of the One Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, commonly known as Eastern Orthodoxy. For over a hundred years, Saint Michael the Archangel has been a beacon of light preaching the one true faith in Saint Louis. Founded in 1909, Saint Michael's parishioners began raising funds for the construction of a Byzantine style temple. The dedication of the new church building at 1901 Ann Ave took place on June 2, 1929. Our mission is to share the love of our Lord Jesus Christ and the truth of the Orthodox Faith to everyone in the Saint Louis community. Our Services are in English and are celebrated on the new (Revised Julian) calendar. All are welcome to come worship in spirit and in truth.
