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.

Are icons necessary?

Starting with the premise that Jesus Christ is the image of God the Father, world-renowned lecturer Fr Thomas Hopko speaks about the icon as the Presence of the living God and dispels prejudices and erroneous practices regarding images and prayer. He notes that prayer, as "union with God by God's grace," transforms our daily routines into Paradise, and he deftly defines the relationship between prayer and imagery, addressing the question: Are icons necessary for prayer?

The Speaker: Protopresbyter Thomas Hopko is Dean Emeritus of St Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary and a world-renowned lecturer.
