Our bookstore is named after Saint Nectarios, one of the most well-known and beloved modern Saints of the Orthodox Faith. He was an accomplished scholar who was eventually ordained a bishop and appointed dean of the theological school in Athens. After an active tenure as a renowned preacher and theologian, he retired to the island of Aegina, where he had established the Monastery of Holy Trinity. He lived a pious and humble Christian life there until his death on November 9, 1920, when he was buried in a special chapel built on the grounds of the Monastery.
This beloved bishop was officially declared a Saint by the Ecumenical Patriarchate in the year 1961. He has been given the title "Wonderworker" and is considered the patron saint of people stricken with cancer, heart trouble, arthritis, epilepsy and many other diseases. Many miraculous cures have been reported by those who have visited his tomb or asked for his prayers.
