The namesake of the ninth-century apostles to the Slavs who invented the Slavic alphabet, the church makes an iconic statement on Olyphant's skyline. Its massive golden dome rises above the church's crossing, flanked by smaller golden domes crowning the four towers tucked into the reentrant corners of the Greek cross plan.
