The mission of Sts. Peter & Paul is to be a beacon of Orthodox Christian spirituality in the greater Boulder area. Our diverse church family encompasses many converts to the Faith, as well as Greek, Arab, Romanian, Serbian and Russian Orthodox members. We strive together to live our Orthodox Christian Faith by having a devoted prayer life, through fasting and almsgiving, and by participating regularly in the services and Sacraments of the Holy Orthodox Church.
We welcome everyone to visit our parish to experience the ancient forms of worship that existed in the early centuries of the Christian Church — which we continue to practice unchanged today. Please take a moment to look through this website to learn more about our parish and our Faith and, if you have any questions, feel free to contact our priest, Fr. Jordan, or come and join us at one of our services or events.
The Parish Oratorical Festival is a wonderful opportunity for our middle and high school youth to share a Christian message in their own words. Join us for Sunday services, a lunch, and then the Festival!
(The bulletin has been listing the Festival as on the 11th. Yes, we are planning this for the 18th!)
Sunday, February 18 @ 5 pm
Forgiveness Vespers is the first Lenten Service of Great Lent. The purpose of Lent is to express all our love for God and for one another through mutual forgiveness. We show our love for God by loving our brothers and sisters. “The triumph of sin, the main sign of its rule over the world is division, opposition, separation and hatred.” Sin builds walls not only between us and God, but between each other. The only way to tear down these walls is by forgiveness. Let us come together this evening and ask for forgiveness. The church is the Body of Christ. When one person sins, the whole Body suffers. We ask for mutual forgiveness to strengthen the church and ourselves.
