St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church, New Haven, CT

 

Dating from 1958, the church of St. Michael the Archangel combines traditional eastern catholic design with modern construction. The architect J.K. Jastremsky was Canadian but born to Ukrainian parents and specialized in Ukrainian churches. Based in New York City, he is most well-known for his churches in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and elsewhere in Connecticut. In New Haven, he also designed a Greek Catholic church, St. Barbara’s, which was completed in 1979.

In addition to the church building at St. Michael, which is decorated with gold mosaics and topped by two domed towers, there is a social hall at the rear of the property that is still active as a Ukrainian social center.
