A Living Liturgy
For Over 100 Years
The story of Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church began in 1915 when Father John Komir, a member of the Czarist-supported Russian missions, arrived from Altoona with Stephen Szuhaj to assist local Orthodox people in the building of a new church. (The Daily News July 21, 1995 'News of Yesteryear').
The congregation of Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church began a new chapter in its long history by joining the Greek Orthodox diocese GOC (Genuine Orthodox Church of America) and welcoming Father Christos Patitsas in 2012 (The Valley Log January 9, 2013).
We welcome children of all ages. They are the future of our parish.
Come and See. The services are ancient as are the chants, incense, icons, and garb.
Sts. Peter and Paul's Parish is an Orthodox Church in Mount Union, Pennsylvania that serves the residents of Huntingdon County and surrounding areas. We welcome you to our parish no matter of your background or heritage. There is a place for everyone in Orthodoxy. To that point, we also look forward to explaining our deep history and beautiful traditions which bring meaning and catharsis to our services.

"Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written."
