St. Michael the Archangel's Church or the Garrison Church is a Roman Catholic church in Kaunas, Lithuania. It was built between 1891 and 1895 in Neo-Byzantine style for the garrison of Kaunas Fortress.

Construction of "military" or "garrison" Orthodox churches in former partitioned Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth lands, started after the putting down of the January Uprising of 1831 and peaked during the reign of Alexander II. Initially the site of the future Kaunas St. Michael the Archangel Church was intended to be used for a Catholic church, however these plans were abandoned due to the Uprising.
