Please remember to turn-off cell phones before entering the church. Do not drink holy water before receiving Holy Communion. Lipstick should be removed before receiving Holy Communion. Dress for church not for sports or social events. There is a dress-code for church. There is a sign in the vestibule that helps with that. The priest is not interested in being the “clothing cop”. Each person is responsible to properly dressed.

Our parish is now in its 4th month of the 2019 Pledge Program. Why is it important to make a pledge commitment? Pledging makes it possible for Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church to meet expenses and provide programs. It provides church leadership with an understanding of the resources that can be available for these commitments. Why does my gift matter? Pledging is about what we can do. It is also about who we are making a commitment and giving annually to the church is one of the ways we express what it means to be disciples and a part of this faith community. By being generous in our financial giving, we express our gratitude for what God is doing in our own life.
