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.

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 Wednesday 25 May 2016 at 8:00am est., we are at 53% 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!

Synaxis of All Saints of Cyprus

Cyprus is known as the "Island of Saints". From apostolic times till our present day we know of 240 Saints from Cyprus. Many many more are unknown to us. There are also many which are only known to the Cypriot people but are not annually commemorated. For this reason, on the first Sunday of October is commemorated all the Saints of the island of Cyprus, both known and unknown. In fact, Archbishop Makarios III counted 369 Saints of Cyprus up until St. Philoumenos who was martyred in 1979.

A list of the 240 Saints of Cyprus can be read at the following blog dedicated to the Saints and Shrines of Cyprus, here.
