Christ is In Our Midst! He is and shall be!

Welcome to Saints Peter and Paul, a small yet vibrant Orthodox Christian community, located in the Lovejoy neighborhood of Buffalo, NY.

Founded by eight, dedicated Christians in 1894, Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church is one of the oldest parishes of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA), Diocese of New York and New Jersey.

If you are in search of a spiritual home, please visit us. Our doors and our hearts are open to you. Come! Learn and share along with us the Orthodox Christian Faith. Services are conducted in both English and Church Slavonic. We hope you will find our Divine services edifying, our social gatherings enjoyable, and parish life to be meaningful.
