Welcome to Saints Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Wilmington, Delaware!  We are an Orthodox Christian Church, professing the unaltered faith and teachings of Jesus Christ and His Apostles, and worshipping according to a cycle of liturgical services which has been in use for nearly two thousand years. The Orthodox faith is the original Christian faith in all of its beauty and glory.
Saints Peter and Paul Church is a parish of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, under the omophorion of His All-Holiness Bartholomew I, Archbishop of Constantinople-New Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch. Although our faith was originally brought to the United States by Ukrainian immigrants, our parish is comprised of persons from all backgrounds and ethnicities.  Orthodoxy is a global faith.  With rare exception, all of our services are in English.  Thanks to the installation of an elevator, our church is handicapped-accessible.
