Who We Are
Parousia Press takes its name from the Greek word parousia (παρουσία)—an arrival or official visit, as from a king or emperor. In the Christian tradition, parousia is the Second Coming of Christ, the event for which we spend our Earthly lives preparing.
The people who make up Parousia Press are Natalia and Maria: adult converts to the Orthodox Church, homeschooling moms (between us, we have eight children under the age of ten), and generally busy people. We know the daily struggle to find time for our spiritual lives amid the demands of housework, schoolwork, and the rest. We strive to live our daily lives in sync with the church calendar but it is difficult to juggle information from Scripture, the Synaxarion, prayer books, and the liturgical calendar.
So we set out to create the resources we wanted but could not find: organizing tools and homeschooling resources that keep Christ, Scripture, saints, feasts, and fasting before us every day. Our aim is to create tools that unite our spiritual lives with our daily lives, thereby truly inhabiting our little churches.
