The Holy Virgin Cathedral Bookstore, established in the 1960s, is an integral part of the Holy Virgin Community of San Francisco. It has a rich history of providing Orthodox books, icons and other items for sale to visitors of the Cathedral of the Mother of God “Joy of All Who Sorrow”.

Since the Glorification of Saint John of Shanghai and San Francisco in 1994, the Bookstore has been the main provider of products associated with one of the most popular Orthodox Saints of our time. Each year thousands of pilgrims flock to our Cathedral from all over the world to venerate the holy relics of Saint John. Most of these guests will also visit the Bookstore to purchase St. John products and other religious items while supporting our Cathedral.
