St. Michael the Archangel (Monessen, Pennsylvania)

St. Michael parish was founded in 1913 by St. Raphael. In 1992, they had the oldest original Orthodox church in the United States, when they moved to an abandoned Catholic church and consecrated an Orthodox altar there.

To their great credit, the parish has produced both a bishop (Bishop Basil-Antiochian Auxiliary) and an archpriest (V.Rev. John Namie-Antiochian Archdiocese).
