In the tenth century the emissaries of Volodymyr the Great, ruler of Kyivan Rus', searched the world for a new faith for his people. When they returned from Constantinople, they related to him that they had encountered God in the beauty of the Christian worship there. That figured into his decision to choose Christianity in its Byzantine form. He and his people were baptized in the year 988 AD. We aim to worship in just such a beautiful, reverent yet dynamic way. Everyone is welcome. Please join us. Вітаємо всіх гостей! По Службі Божій залишіться в нас на обід!
The name Michael is from the Hebrew and means "Who is like God?" St. Michael is an Archangel and the leader of the heavenly hosts. He is a mighty protector, and many of our parishioners can attest to his protection.
