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 Friday 26 May 2016 at 10:00am 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!

An Orthodox Community in Western Papua (Photos)

The Patriarchate of Moscow, through the Metropolis' of Australia and New Zealand, is doing missionary work in Western Papua. Fr. Chrysostomos Gasperz leads this mission now for the past few months.

Fr. Chrysostomos has already done catechisms and performed baptisms in the region of Jayapura, Papua and has established the Holy Church of Saint Nicholas, which is still under construction.

Below are published some photos of the Orthodox community of Jayapura, beginning with the baptism of a catechumen, the construction of the church, a Divine Liturgy in the room of a house, as well as others.
