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.

We expect the new Orthodox Marketplace and Resource Center website to launch later this summer.

A clumsy scullery boy finds solace in a place known only to him and his God in this charming story of the ninth-century saint, Euphrosynos, commonly known in Orthodox tradition as " Cook." Author Catherine K. Contopoulos easily links the feelings of contemporary children with the feelings of this legendary character' self-conscious, awkward boy who leaves his loving family and the taunts of his neighbors to find a niche in the kitchen of a monastic community. Readers will hurt when neighbors make fun of a confused Euphrosynos at the local cheese shop, laugh and then tremble when an austere monk slips upon Euphrosynos' newly mopped floor, and find an oasis of peace as Euphrosynos prays in his solitary cave. They also will learn lessons of perseverance, humility, and dependence upon God as they are naturally drawn into the story. Contopoulos achieves these goals with language that a child will understand.

Her marvelous account is illustrated by Chrissanth Greene-Gross' soft, yet vibrant, realistic images that will engage children and warm their souls. SVS Press is pleased to welcome this new author and illustrator in this volume, which is most appropriate for children ages six to ten.

Author Catherine K. Contopoulos is a freelance writer who lives in Hackensack, New Jersey with her husband and daughter. This is her first children' book.

Chrissanth Greene-Gross is an award-winning portrait artist and sculptor, who explores her passion for the marriage of word and image in this, her first children' book. Chrissanth lives in Millwood, New York with her husband and three children.
