You are invited to visit Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church in the village of Crossingville in Edinboro, Pennsylvania! We are a parish of the Orthodox Christian Faith which was established by the Apostles on the day of Holy Pentecost in the Year 33 AD. Our church is a member of the Archdiocese of Pittsburgh and Western Pennyslvania of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). 

The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It is not non-denominational, it is pre-denominational. It has been believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for. It is the Faith that has established the universe!

Come worship with us and the Saints of all ages!
