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 Monday 30 May 2016 at 8:00am est., we are at 58% 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!

A Snake of the Panagia Has Appeared in Kefallonia (2013)

August 6, 2013

The snakes of the Panagia have appeared in Arginia!

Today, Tuesday August 6th, a Supplication Service was conducted by Archimandrite Fr. Gerasimos Phokas, during which the first snake appeared.

From today until the 15th of August other snakes will emerge. You can visit the village and see them up close!

When the snakes come out, it is considered good luck for Kefalonia. The two years they didn't emerge, in 1940 and 1953, the island suffered war and earthquakes.

Many photos can be seen here.
