Today is a day of St. Peter-Paul. In connection with the holiday, liturgy-prayer will be conducted in the Orthodox churches of Georgia. 

Solemnity of the Saint Peter and Saint Paul is celebrated on June 29 according to the old Julian calendar, and according to a new Gregorian calendar - on 12 July.  The next day, i.e. on June 30 with an old style calendar, the church recalls the meeting of the saint apostles: Peter, Andrea, Jacob son of Zebedi, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, Matthew, Jacob son of Alpes, Judah son of Jacob (Thadeoz) and Simon.    

St. Apostle Peter and Paul are distinguished from other apostles by their contribution and martyr merit. For this reason the Church recalls them as the “heads of apostles”. Despite the fact that they reached Christ in different ways, some spiritual closeness is between them, some similarity, which becomes apparent even with the fact that the two died at the same time, during the times of the Emperor Neron, in the year 67, when Peter was tortured on the cross upside down, and Paul’s head was chopped off.
