WELCOME to the website of Saints Peter & Paul Romanian Orthodox Church of Dearborn Heights, Michigan.  We hope that this information will give you a good impression of our parish family, and we invite all to visit us and join us if you are looking for a spiritual home.  Our doors are open to all - both American and Romanian born faithful - who wish to live and learn the Holy Orthodox Faith: the Faith passed down from Jesus Christ to His Apostles, and from those Apostles down through the Church over the centuries to us today.

BINE AŢI VENIT pe site-ul Bisericii Ortodoxe Române Sfinţii Petru şi Pavel din Dearborn Heights, Michigan.  Sperăm că informaţia de faţă vă va face o impresie bună despre familia parohiei noastre, şi vă invităm să ne vizitaţi şi să vă alăturaţi nouă dacă sunteţi in căutarea unei case spirituale.  Uşile noastre sunt deschise tuturor - atât credincioşilor născuţi în America cât şi în România - care doresc să trăiască şi să înveţe Sfânta Credinţă Ortodoxă, lăsată de Iisus Hristos apostolilor Lui, iar de la aceştia prin Biserică, de-a lungul veacurilor transmisă nouă astăzi.
