Welcome!

You are cordially invited to visit Ss. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church in Manville. We are a Pan-Orthodox community serving the region of central New Jersey. Our Church is a parish of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey; of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). We warmly welcome all who are searching for a church that is in unchanging continuity with the Church of the Apostles and where they may find the purity of the Apostolic Faith.

We are a church for those of all ages, ethnicities, and races, for both families and singles who are searching for the anchor of a Christian community in our rootless society.

Above all, we are a Eucharistic community worshiping the Holy Trinity in spirit and truth as we seek to know God, to be conformed to Christ's example of true humanity, and to be transformed to become partakers of the Divine Nature. Come and worship with us and with the Saints of all ages!
