If you got here by way of the St. Peter the Apostle Webpage, you're in the right place! We have merged with St. Herman's and are now worshipping in Lake Worth. Come and visit us and glorify Christ with us! God bless you! (To revisit any of the articles, sermons or pictures from St. Peter's check out the Archive above) Welcome to St. Herman's!

-St. Herman of Alaska
St. Herman of Alaska Orthodox Church considers it our special calling first and foremost to bring the Light of Christ and His Church to the small corner of the world that He has gathered us. We are here to witness to the Life of the Holy Spirit in the Church, our Holy Tradition, which is not merely adhering to a set of rules, but rather, letting Christ be the rule of our life. Our special witness comes through personal spiritual renewal and service to others. We are called to reach out to the un-churched, and to welcome home those who have strayed. To one and all we say, "Come and See!"
