Welcome to Saint Peters Cathedral

St. Peter's Syriac Orthodox Cathedral, Philadelphia was established in 1977. Since then our church has been growing tremendously with strong fellowship and true faith.

  • Help The Poor


    "Lift up and stretch out your hands, not to heaven but to the poor; for if you stretch out your hands to the poor, you have reached the summit of heaven. But if you lift up your hands in prayer without sharing with the poor, it is worth nothing ... Every family should have a room where Christ is welcomed in the person of the hungry and thirsty stranger. The poor are a greater temple than the sanctuary; this altar the poor, you can raise up anywhere, on any street, and offer the liturgy at any hour."


    St John Chrysostom
