Christ is born! Greetings to you all during the afterfeast of Christ’s Nativity (the time period the Slavic churches sometimes call “Sviatki”). We are pleased to announce that we have a few new items available in our online bookstore!

One of them is a new soap: Grapefruit Rosemary. The clean herbal aroma of rosemary is matched with the light refreshing citrus of grapefruit to make a delightful soap that is perfect for face, hands and body. This is a soap for those who want the benefits of essential oils without being overpowered by the fragrance. The top of each bar has a thin layer of our homegrown ground rosemary to add a mild exfoliating effect.

The other is a limited stock item – and that is the All Merciful Saviour Monastery’s Wall Calendar for 2020!
Also … an announcement of upcoming items. A few months ago we made a small icon of St. Paisios of Mt. Athos available and it sold out extremely quickly! Since we also got a lot of positive feedback about many aspects of the item we have decided to begin to produce other icons in a similar manner, size and price by the same iconographer. They are produced in Greece and take some time to get here to America, and we purchase them in small batches at a time, though, so when they become available they are likely to move quickly!
