Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church Miami

About Us

Our Humble Beginnings

Established in 1951, Saints Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox Greek Catholic Church is one of Miami’s oldest Eastern Orthodox parishes. In 1954, the parish rooted itself in the historic Shenandoah neighborhood (an area currently referred to as “Little Havana”) by purchasing the mansion of Miami’s first elected mayor. After extensive renovations, Mayor Reilly’s elegant home, built in 1927, was transformed into a beautiful house of worship and refuge, while retaining residence quarters on the second floor. The parish community’s commitment to the area was fully confirmed when the mortgage was paid off just a few years later, in 1960.

Over its more than 70-year history, Saints Peter and Paul has been served by numerous devoted senior priests and deacons who nurtured this multi-ethnic community in faith and love. While Saints Peter and Paul parish has ministered to the spiritual needs of the Orthodox Christian faithful, it has also opened its doors more broadly to the community at large through refugee assistance, poverty relief efforts, addiction recovery support, and outreach ministries
