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.

Metropolitan Isaiah on Suicide and Cremation
Beloved in the Lord,
During the past several years it appears that a number of people who have been recognized as Orthodox Christians have taken their lives, as well as some who leave in their wills that they wish to be cremated.
Do you know and understand the Church's teaching on suicide and cremation?
Over the years, many people have asked me what the Church’s fasting requirements are during Great Lent. Some questioned the value of this ancient practice, and others looked at it with intimidation as they found themselves unable to keep the fast in its strictest forms. As you can imagine, I have spent countless hours trying to explain the tradition of fasting and convince others of its value, dissuade them from looking at it in a legalistic manner and guide them to a proper view of the fast so that it may bear spiritual fruits in them.
Churches are Hospitals for the Soul
There are two pandemics raging now, and that of the human psyche is a greater force to be reckoned with than the coronavirus. If hospitals are needed to treat those infected with COVID, then churches are needed to treat the human soul, according to His Eminence Metropolitan Gabriel of Lovech of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church.
Metropolitan Isaiah on receiving the Holy Eucharist
As members of our Orthodox Christian Church which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ established through His Supreme Sacrifice on the Holy Cross, giving His holy Body and Sacred Blood for the Life of the world, we have been facing unwelcomed difficulties in unncessary discussions concerning the manner our people partake of the Holy Eurcharist. In the past two thousand years of the Church, during the first millennium the manner of the people receiving the Holy Eucharist was evolving. But for the past millennium the Church established the way in which people of all ages, including baptized infants and the elderly, could easily partake of the holy Body and sacred Blood of the Lord without difficulties in receiving the holy gifts.
Attendance is limited to 45 people in the church during the services. A sign-up for each week's more popular services will be sent out and posted to the web site.
A mask is required to be properly worn at services (unless one is 10 years old or younger, or cannot medically tolerate a face covering). If you do not have a mask, or have forgotten it, one can be provided.
