Welcome to the website of Dormition Skete, located in the mountains outside of beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado. We are an Orthodox Christian monastery, living according to the traditions handed down to us by the holy fathers and mothers of the Orthodox Church.
Our monastery is entirely self-supporting. We do not solicit contributions for our continuing existence, although we do greatly appreciate them.
Dormition Skete offers some of the finest icons available in the world. We offer hand-painted panel icons and frescoes, as well as mounted icons. Further, we also produce some of the highest quality incense available, along with many other products relating to the Orthodox Faith.
Holy Apostles Convent, our sister monastery, offers high quality publications on the Holy Scriptures and the Lives of the Saints from the original Greek texts, which are also profusely illustrated for the reader’s edification and spiritual enjoyment. Please take the time to visit this website, too, at http://www.HolyApostlesConvent.org
Please take some time to explore our website, and we hope you will order some of the fruits of our labors.

We would like to welcome you to our new WebStore. We have developed this, with God’s help, with you — the Customer — in mind. It has many new features that we hope you will find helpful.
Some of the Highlights of the New WebStore include:
You can now order custom icons directly from the store. If you cannot find an icon you are looking for on our store, please feel free to contact us about it. We also have an extensive icon library with over 10,000 icon subjects which we can use to make almost any icon that you might desire.
Our “Saved Carts” has been enhanced. Any items added to your cart will be available on that device in future sessions. If you log in on a particular device, your Cart items for that device will automatically be linked to you so they will be available for your use on any device that you log into in the future.
The images on this store are much larger, and some items have more than one image available. All images can also be enlarged by clicking on them.
Suggestions and images for related items are readily available in the side bar for most items.
The store has been designed to be easily usable on anything from a Desktop Computer to a Tablet. When using smaller devices, the sidebar will automatically be hidden for your convenience. If you would like it shown anyway, simply click on the splitter. If you would like the sidebar hidden at any time, again simply click on the splitter. When the sidebar is hidden, the Search section is moved to the top right corner of the page to still be easily accessible to you on any page.
The Search Functions have been radically improved. You can now search for an icon either by name, or part of a name, or simply by the first letter of the Saint’s name. For instance, searching for “N” would yield icons such as “Nicholas” and “Nectarios”. This is also made very easy for you, in that at the top of each “Search Result” or Category listing is an Alphabetic Search section with all of the letters of the Alphabet for you to simply click on for all of the icons we offer that start with that letter.
Our Search Results layout is easily configurable for the way you like to shop. You can change the columns and the rows to look at just a few items at a time, or many items at once.
And much more.
