We are also open for a couple of hours after Liturgy on most Sundays (12pm to 2pm).   Changes in the store hours are made for Liturgies during Lent, Pascha, Nativity and other Feast day services so it is best to call and confirm before you make a special trip visit with us.

In addition to our wide selection of books and icons we also offer for sale – prayer ropes, incense, CD’s, tapes and DVD’s, handmade gift items, cards, charcoal, burners, head scarves, vigil lamps, prosphora seals, and candles, to name a few.

We have a comfortable couch where people
can sit and browse through books, look over our articles (which are available for copying) and chat.

Please come by and browse or just visit!


We always keep our prices where the publisher suggest so that we remain competitive. Buyers still save S&H by making purchases in our store. If you are looking for a special item, let us help you find and order it from one of our many suppliers.
