Welcome to Saint Michael the Archangel Orthodox Church located in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia. The Orthodox Church is the original Christian Church, the unbroken line of Christianity from the Day of Pentecost to the present time. We are a member of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA, a canonical branch of Russian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate).
Saint Michael’s is well-known as a friendly church, welcoming new parishioners, visitors, and individuals and families interested in exploring Orthodoxy. Our parishioners are themselves very much of a family in the best sense of the meaning -- worshiping, rejoicing and celebrating together, and always concerned about the well-being of each other.
Charitable works are central to the life of a Christian community. Some of our activities include: food collections, clothing and toiletries collection for the homeless, participation in a city clean up and raising funds to repair a church damaged by an earthquake.
We cordially invite you to visit Saint Michael’s Church, and to experience the meaning, beauty, and vitality of Orthodoxy, to discover a new dimension for your life, and to meet and interact with new friends.
