Feast of St Michael Today the church celebrates St Michael the Archangel and All Angels. We give thanks that we are surrounded and protected by these messengers from God, and we pray that we might hear the song of the angels in heaven. St Michael is also the patron saint of Kyiv, and so today we hold that city in our prayers, asking for God’s protection and comfort. St Michael's Chapel in the Cathedral is named after the Archangel. In the chapel is an icon for St Michael that you can visit and light at a candle at.
