About OramaWorld.com

    OramaWorld.com, with more than 45 years of industry experience in producing hand crafted ecclesiastical goods, is the World's Oldest Orthodox Christian Online Store that provides worldwide quality hand crafted religious items inspired from Orthodox Tradition and Byzantine Art. We operate online since the end of last century and we serve the whole Christian World. Today, we serve clients in more than 60 countries and you may read sample feedback we have received by clicking here!

    Our Name comes from the Greek word Orama that means Vision and together with the word World (Ecumenical) depicts our vision for serving all Christians around the globe with quality hand crafted religious goods. Our Symbol, the double headed eagle, is the Emblem of Byzantium and Orthodox Christianity. The double headed eagle looks at all the world both east and west. An eagle can see far away, further than any other creature. A double headed eagle sees everything; it symbolizes foresight, wisdom, prophesying, as it is mentioned in the writings of Christian Holy Fathers.

    Following, our mission is to provide quality hand crafted religious items and offer all our customers a unique shopping experience. In our effort to offer the best products available, we affiliate with the best workshops of ecclesiastical items and monasteries in South-Eastern Europe. Our craftsmen and iconographers are crafting and painting with great respect to the Orthodox Tradition and Byzantine Art. We have filmed one of our craftsmen preparing a chalice set with enamel and you can see how our hand crafted items are crafted by watching the relevant video! (aprox. 10Mb)

    In 2006 we launched the World Orthodox Directory, an initiative that aims to become the most complete online directory of Worldwide Orthodox Heritage, Presence and Community Service Activities. The directory currently includes more than 15,000 listings of Monasteries, Churches, Cathedrals, Chapels, Missions, Sketes, Orphanages, Nursing-homes, Museums, Schools and Seminaries from approximately 70 countries from all over the World.

    During the composition of our Founding Statement, back in September 1999, we decided annually to offer 1% from every order we will receive to Philanthropic efforts, with the idea of having our customers indirectly contributed to each of them. The first 8 years we offered this amount to the following Community Service Activities:

2000/1 - Eccleciastical Orphanage of Vouliagmeni
2002 - Lirio Institution for Children
2003 - Doctors without Borders
2004 - Hemophilia Society
2005/6 - To Hamogelo tou Pediou
2007 - SOS Children's Villages
2008 - United Nation's Children's Fund Organisation

    Since 2008 we have launched the "Lighten a Church" service, that brings together Priests or Parish Council Officers, who need goods and facilities for their Church that can not afford to acquire, and Donators that are willing to support. The service gives the ability to our site visitors to donate to Churches with specific contributions that the corresponding Priests have previously selected. We are very pleased to have directly "lighten" the following churches:

2009 - Prophet Elias Chapel at Tinos, Greece
2010 - Protection of the Mother of God Ukrainian Church at Sao Jose dos Pinhais, Brazil
2011 - St. Theophan House Church, Paranaque City, Metro Manila, Philippines
2012/14 - Saint Demetrios Chapel, Benitses, Corfu, Greece
2013 - Holy Dormition Orthodox Church, Calhan, Colorado, United States
2015 - Holy Monastery of Saint George Trimorfos, Serres, Greece
