The Story

The Ss Peter & Paul Orthodox Church is celebrating is 110th anniversary in September. We are looking to take on needed maintenance to our church entrance. Your donations are tax deductible!!

Saints Peter and Paul Church has been the spiritual home of thousands of Orthodox Christians of northeastern New Jersey since 1907. From a parish community founded by immigrants from Eastern Europe, it has become the home for people of multi-cultures seeking the Orthodox faith from across the country.  

The spiritual roots of the century-old community were planted in Alaska in 1794 as an initiative of the North American Ecclesiastical Mission of the Russian Orthodox Church, expanded on the west coast and developed on the east coast as Orthodox emigrated from southeastern Europe in the late 1890’s and following WWII.

The earliest worship and administration of the community were in various house chapels under the guidance of +Father Alexander Hotovitzky, who was a missionary of the Russian Orthodox Church, founder of several parishes in the United States and Canada, and later returned to Russia where he was martyred in 1938.

The parish is part of the Orthodox Church in America, which consists of more than 700 parishes, missions, communities, monasteries and institutions in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The Gates of Heaven fundraiser has been a success. Thank you for your generosity. This is an update to our parishioners and donors that we are still trying to source a contractor to do the work on the doors, and we have to be careful about whom we choose because of the complexity of the job. We will continue to explore options and will update you once the project begins.

Thank you for your generous donations to this effort. We have identified a vendor who can repair the mechanism, but we must remove the doors to get to the mechanism. We are now following leads for companies that can perform this difficult work. It will require qualified professionals to remove the doors and install the new mechanisms. 
The Anniversary committee is busy making final preparations for the event, just 5 weeks away! If you have not mailed back your RSVP et, please do so by September 10th. If you did not receive an invitation please contact the rectory and confirm your mailing address. 201 434-1986

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are just over 50% of goal. We have begun the search for a work crew to assist the removal and replacement of the doors during the repair. We are now 3 months out from our 110th anniversary so time is of the essence! 

Our anniversary committee is busy planning the event! We have narrowed down the food choices and started planning for speakers. Look for information about tickets soon!
