Welcome to the Holy Cross Orthodox Mission Bookstore
The only Orthodox Christian bookstore in Melbourne’s CBD, is conveniently located in the Holy Cross Mission building near Parliament railway station.
The Holy Cross Bookstore is primarily a missionary outreach making available quality Orthodox Christian literature in English.
We have a wide range of books and items in the Orthodox Christian tradition: prayer books, spiritual reading, catechism lessons, lives of saints, Bibles and Orthodox theology. We also have a good selection of books on patristics, monasticism, Church history, liturgy, and Orthodox spirituality, all from an Orthodox perspective.
Some of our most popular items include:
- Prosphora stamps
- Icons and icon greeting cards
