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 later this summer.

The North Star is always above me because I live in Alaska. Father Herman is our North Star, forever guiding us in God's way.

- from North Star: St Herman of Alaska

In 1974, a group of Russian Orthodox missionaries landed on Kodiak Island, Alaska, with the intent to preach the Gospel. Of this initial effort there survived one monk, Father Herman, who lived among the Aleut people for more than forty years and earned the loving nickname Apa, or "grandfather." Saint Herman's sense of humor, strict asceticism and care for the physical and spiritual needs of the natives left a memorable legacy.

In this charming volume, author and illustrator Dorrie Papademetriou captures the divine spark that shone in the monk Herman and reflects it across the pages. The world of Apa and the Aleuts comes alive in vibrant illustrations while readers are warmed by the words of this human heart aflame with divine love.

Dorrie Papademetriou is an artist and designer who lives in Michigan with her husband and sons. She is the author of Celebrate the Earth and The Story of Mary, also available from St Vladimir's Seminary Press.
