Saints Peter & Paul Church of South Bend, Indiana
is one of the oldest Serbian Orthodox churches in the U.S.
In 1911, a small group of only eleven Serbian families
came together in faith and with a strong abiding love for their
Orthodox Christian faith to build the first church in South Bend. They had little money, but with hard work and
personal sacrifice the cornerstone of the church was laid in 1911. This devoted small group of Serbian people
finally realized the reward of celebrating the Divine Liturgy to the
glory of God in their own church.
Today, under the leadership of our priest, Fr. Sasa Nedic, we are confident that our Church will continue to grow to the Glory of God.
