Advent & Nativity
Perfect stocking stuffer for under a dollar! Sweet Christmas-theme for little ones.

More Christmas fun with this little dot-to-dot coloring book!

This ornament kit includes 7 pre-printed shrink-plastic sheets and instructions to create seven easy-to-make (for all ages) ornaments including:

The Theotokos With Child * St. Nicholas of Myra * Nativity of Our Lord * Christ is Born! Glorify Him! * Veneration of the Magi * Flight into Egypt * The Holy Archangel Gabriel.

Finished product shrinks considerably and has a stained-glass look.  A fun craft & a lovely gift for children to make for loved ones or as a church school project.

Also a nice fundraiser for SOYO groups to sell the finished icons for stocking stuffers and gifts.

The author's rich, engaging iconographic illustrations add to the beauty of the Christmas story, from the journey to Bethlehem to the flight to Egypt.

Both Scripture and Tradition tell of the gold, frankincense and myrrh. This story follows the gifts from the Magi's hands to a Holy Monastery on Mt. Athos.

Written by Chrissi Hart and beautifully illustrated by Niko Chocheli, this story retells the Golden Legend from the Garden of Eden to Golgotha. A lovely gift for Pascha!

#17 in the Paterikon for Kids series, this lovely little book tells the inspiring story of St. Elias. Illustrated by the publisher's son!

Beautiful retelling of the baptism of Christ with scripture and pen and ink iconic drawings. A must-have for Theophany!

We have SOLD OUT of our St. Nicholas coins this season.

An important part of any St. Nicholas Day celebration, gold foil chocolate coins are traditionally included in the St. Nicholas stocking or shoe. They commemorate Saint Nicholas saving three poor peasant daughters from a life of sin and despair, when he threw gold coins in their window for their marriage dowries. The coins are traditionally believed to have landed into their stockings/shoes close to the fireplace--why we hang Christmas stockings on the fireplace today.

St. Nicholas chocolate coins are a lovely treat to give to our children, parish family, godchildren, neighbors, teachers, friends, co-workers, even to those serving in our military overseas.  Great for stocking stuffers, gift baskets, and care packages.

Available in milk, dark (non-dairy), & mint chocolate, our chocolate coin packages come in three sizes: 3 pack, 12 pack, and 24 pack. 

We will also be offering discounted St. Nicholas coins in bulk (not packaged) on our website this year.  Click here for bulk coins.

International orders may require extra shipping charges and time.
