Cathedral of the Archangel Michael in Zheleznogorsk
In 1990, a group of believers took the initiative to create an Orthodox community in Zheleznogorsk and build a church. On December 27, 1990, with the blessing of the ruling bishop, the head priest of the new parish arrived in the city.
The first service was held in the city museum on Christmas Eve, January 6, 1991. In the same month, the city planning council determined the place for the construction of the temple - a site in a forested area on the lake. On July 26, 1992, the consecration and laying of the first stone at the site of the future temple took place. And on November 21, 1999, on the feast day of Archangel Michael, the first Divine Liturgy was celebrated in the new church by the hierarchal rank. In 2008, the temple was granted the status of a cathedral by a patriarchal decree.
