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.

Festival Baking

We're gearing up for Festival Baking Days, and we need your help!

Last year we made 1,000 pieces of baklava and sold all of them, so we need as many people as possible helping us bake for the festival. Even if you can only come for an hour, please do so -- every little bit helps.

Children and teens are welcome; please help us by supervising young children. If you don't know how to bake, don't worry -- we'll teach you all you need to know.

Below are the upcoming scheduled baking days -- all times are 9 am - 12 noon.

  • Wednesday, August 21
  • Friday, August 23
  • Friday, August 30

If you have questions, please contact Juli Sarris.
