St. Michael the Archangel
Holy Scripture describes St. Michael the Archangel as one of the chief princes and a leader of the forces of heaven in the triumph over the powers of hell. St. Michael has been especially honored and invoked as patron and protector by the Church since the time of the Apostles.
St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church had its beginnings in Clayton in 1913 and combined with St. George’s Episcopal Church in 1928 to become The Church of St. Michael & St. George.
St. George, the patron saint of England, was a martyr who suffered near Lydda, also known as Diospolis, in the Holy Land. Little else is known of St. George.
In 1845, St. George’s Episcopal Church was established in the City of St. Louis. In 1928, St. George’s Episcopal Church was combined with The Church of St. Michael and All Angels to create The Church of St. Michael & St. George.
