A New Orthodox Marketplace Website is Coming!

The Orthodox Marketplace online web store and the Department of Religious Education's catalog store are in the process of merging operations.

While we are working out the details of this transition, the Orthodox Marketplace website will suspend sales functionality of the site. Customers will be able to browse the catalog, log in and check on the status of outstanding orders and order history (including downloads).

However, the cart and checkout features will be disabled.

If you wish to purchase items in the interim, a subset of our product catalog is still available from our Amazon Storefront.

You may also wish to purchase items from the Department of Religious Education Resource Guide, available below. The DRE can be reached via their toll-free number: 1-800-566-1088.

We expect the new Orthodox Marketplace and Resource Center website to launch in 2016.

We all know that Saint Christopher is the protector of all those who pray to him when they are driving, travelling, or just going from one place to another. But what do we know about his amazing life? In this book, with its superb illustrations and lively text, we can learn along with our children about how the great savage became a great saint! Saint Christopher had a fascinating life. He was born a savage among savages and ended up a saint among the saints. Before knowing Christ he persecuted and harassed travellers, but as soon as he knew Him he became their protector and helper. We can learn a lot from the life of Saint Christopher. Above all, we learn that it makes no difference what we are like before we come to know Christ, whether we are savage, ugly, good-looking or wicked. The important thing is for us to put our life under the leadership of the Triadic God Himself and of no one else. The saint rejoices when we try to serve Christ, who is the one truly good and powerful Lord. Saint Christopher also rejoices when we are careful while travelling or moving around, especially when we travel and drive like saints and not like savages. Saint Christopher is the patron saint of many cities in the Christian world. For example, in Europe the biggest city which has him as its patron saint is the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, in Greece he is the patron saint of Agrinio, and Pikermi, Attica. He is also the patron saint of Rab in Croatia, Barga in Tuscany, Italy, Roermond in the Netherlands, many towns in Germany, and Havana in Cuba, and there’s a small nation that bears his name, the Federation of Saint Kitts (Christopher) and Nevis.
