Welcome to Our Parish!

Welcome to Saint Peter & Saint Paul Orthodox Church’s website! If you are a first-time visitor or long-time member, please take a few minutes to explore our site. You will find information on our parish’s activities and events, as well as several good resources for those curious about the Orthodox Faith.

The Orthodox Church humbly, yet confidently professes to be the original Church of Christ, founded on the apostolic witness to our Lord, born on the Day of Pentecost, and for over 2,000 years making known to all nations the path to salvation through repentance and faith in Christ. Our parish family is dedicated to spreading the Good News throughout our local community and the world. Our members are made up of a variety of ethnic and social backgrounds, and our services are in English. We welcome all visitors, whether they are long-time Orthodox Christians, new converts, those rediscovering their faith after many years away or simply wanting to learn more about Orthodox Christianity.

For more information on our parish, to schedule pastoral counseling, visitations, baptisms, weddings or other sacraments, or to inquire more about our faith, please contact Fr. Herman Kincaid (contact info below).

2014-15SchoolStart

“But Jesus called them to Him and said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid it; for such is the kingdom of God,'” (Luke 18:16).  We continue to be blessed with over thirty families participating in our church school program. The 2014-2015 school year consists of 10 classes from preschool through high school. As always, there is no fee for our program, and visitors are welcome and encouraged to join a class for the day. Extracurricular activities and service projects are also planned throughout the year for all ages. See the latest bulletin for more information.

Sayings of the Fathers

I ask you to try something. If someone grieves you, or dishonors you, or takes something of yours, then pray like this: “Lord, we are all your creatures. Pity your servants, and turn them to repentance,” and then you will perceptibly bear grace in your soul. Induce your heart to love your enemies, and the Lord, seeing your good will, shall help you in all things, and will Himself show you experience. But whoever thinks evil of his enemies does not have love for God and has not known God.

St. Silouan the Athonite
