The Mystagogy Resource Center is currently in a fundraising campaign to continue and expand its service. Your financial support is very much appreciated. Read more about it here. Whatever contribution you make, will be matched by an anonymous supporter, thus doubling your gift.

In an effort to reach our financial goal of $10,000 we will be absent from posting and working behind the scenes until the goal is met.

Currently, as of Tuesday 31 May 2016 at 3:30pm est., we are at 61% of our goal.

I hope you will help us reach our goal quickly. If everyone that visited this site today contributed just a few dollars, the goal would be reached in a matter of hours. Thank you!

Two "Ape" Nuns Invade Loutraki

On Tuesday July 14th the police in Loutraki, Corinth arrested two women posing as nuns to deceive the faithful. They were selling icons, crosses, prayer ropes, and incense saying that they were raising money for a holy purpose. Loutraki prosecutors discovered they in fact had ill intentions. A lawsuit was filed against them to face prosecution. Greek newspapers have been calling them the "ape" nuns.

This is actually more common than this one incident. Someone once told me about meeting some questionable nuns trying to raise money somewhere in Greece. When he asked them from which monastery they were from, they said they were from Mount Athos!

PS. For those not aware, Mount Athos is an exclusively all male community.
