ARCHANGEL MICHAEL
ORTHODOX CHURCH

BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, OHIO

The Archangel Michael, Patron Saint of our Church 

In the Orthodox Church, Archangel Michael is considered one of the most important and revered angels. He is often depicted with a sword, symbolizing his role as a protector and defender of the faith. The Archangel Michael is believed to have first appeared in the Old Testament, where he is described as a warrior angel who fights against evil.

In Orthodox tradition, the Archangel Michael also plays a key role in the Last Judgment, where he will weigh souls and determine whether they are worthy of entering heaven. Additionally, he is seen as a powerful intercessor and is often invoked for protection against spiritual and physical dangers.

Overall, the Archangel Michael is seen as a symbol of strength, courage, and righteousness in the Orthodox Church. His dedication to defending and upholding the faith is seen as a model for all believers to follow.

TODAY'S THOUGHT

“Everything has already begun, and everything always begins anew for the Church, with the Resurrection of our Lord.” – His Beatitude, Patriarch Ignatius IV

Celebrating
100 Years!

The year of 2022 marked an exciting milestone in the life of Archangel Michael Orthodox Church. We celebrated the 100th anniversary of our parish. In 1922, without a building to call their own, a group of faithful Orthodox began holding services at a local YMCA, St. Sava’s Serbian Orthodox church on East 36th and ultimately until 1926, in a vacant building on the property of the old Second Presbyterian Church on East 30th St. From these humble beginnings, through the purchase of land on Union Avenue to building and opening of a sister parish in Maple Heights, and finally to the purchase of property and building of our current Archangel Michael Church in Broadview Heights, we have a lot to celebrate and to be thankful for!
