Thank you for visiting our parish website. We hope you find our site informative and edifying. We also invite you to join us for one of our liturgical services – services that have been part of the worshipping tradition of apostolic Christianity since the era of the “early Christian Church."
Our parish is part of the Orthodox Church in America. We are part of the global Eastern Orthodox Church community which includes national churches in traditionally Orthodox countries like Russia, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Cyprus, and the Middle East, but also in Japan, China, India, the Philippines, throughout Europe including Germany, France, Poland, Finland, across the British Isles, throughout the African continent including Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa, and across North, Central and South America. The OROTHODOX FAITH is all the same, but the ethnic title either refers to wheich country it is in, or which imigrants brought it to America. There are over 250 million Eastern Orthodox Christians in the world today and over 1 million in the United States.
Our parish is more than just a place where people come to worship the living God (although it is first and foremost that!). We are a vibrant faith community of people of all ages and backgrounds who are working out their faith together and raising their families in accordance with the commandments of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the sacred norms for spiritual life of the ancient Holy Eastern Orthodox Church.
Many of our congregants journeyed to the Orthodox Church from other Christian faith traditions and denominations and some non-Christian religious and spiritual traditions. Whether you are “on a journey” or just wanting to visit a local Orthodox parish you will be welcome here at Ss Peter & Paul. We are always honored to have visitors join us for prayer and worship.
