The Sts. Cyril and Methodius Church is a historic Roman Catholic church at 63 Governor Street in Hartford, Connecticut. It is a large, two story brick structure with limestone trim, designed by Timothy G. O'Connell and built in 1914 to serve the city's growing Polish-American population. The interior in particular is decorated with symbols generally found in Catholic churches in Poland, including the Polish eagle.[2]

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
