SS. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church stands in solidarity with our community as we confront the hazards and challenges of the novel coronovirus. Starting August 30, we enter “Phase 3” of our reopening plans: up to three services or indoor events per week, with up to 50 participants; outdoor events following the general state guidelines; and pastoral visits in outdoor settings. Learn the details and sign up on our Sign Up page.
We know that many will not be able to physically attend services for many days to come, and we want our whole community engaged each week; so we are continuing to share all our worship services online via GoToMeeting. Our Praying at Home, Praying Together page has all the details, and is kept up to date with the latest plans.
Welcome! We are the only Orthodox Christian parish located in Meriden or its neighboring towns, bearing witness to the fullness of the Faith first delivered by the Apostles of Jesus Christ. If you are an Orthodox Christian living in the area, we hope to see you soon. If you are searching for the purity of the Christian Faith in a world where teaching, morals, and worship shift with each passing fad, come and see for yourself what Orthodox Christianity is all about, where we unswervingly hold to the faith “once-for-all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3).
Founded in 1911, we are a parish of the Diocese of New England in the Orthodox Church in America, under the leadership of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon. All services are in English. People of all backgrounds are unreservedly welcome.
If you have never witnessed Orthodox Christian worship and know little or nothing about the Orthodox Church, please visit with us and experience it first-hand. You will receive a warm welcome.
