Welcome to Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church, a parish of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). We are the oldest Orthodox Church in Western New York. Our services are mostly in English with very little Church Slavonic. All are welcome to attend any of our services. Enjoy reading about our faith, our church and its activities. If you are looking for a church to worship in or you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our parish priest, Archpriest John P. Hutnyan. 

Our Faith

“As the prophets beheld, as the Apostles have taught, as the Church has received, as the Teachers have dogmatised, as the Universe has agreed, as Grace has shown forth, as Truth has revealed, as falsehood has been dissolved, as Wisdom has presented, as Christ awarded, thus we declare; thus we assert, thus we preach Christ our true God, and honour His Saints in words, in writings, in thoughts, in sacrifices, in Churches, in Holy Icons; on the one hand worshiping and reverencing Christ as God and Lord; and on the other hand honouring as true servants of the same Lord of all and accordingly offering them veneration.

“This is the Faith of the Apostles, this is the Faith of the Fathers, this is the Faith of the Orthodox, this is the Faith which has established the Universe!”

from the Synodikon of Sunday of Orthodoxy
(1st Sunday of Great Lent)
