Many thanks to all those who sponsor and support the Mystagogy Resource Center; your positive feedback and generosity through financial gifts have been encouraging. Without this support, I would not be able to devote the time I need to produce all that you will see moving forward. Since I am now working by the hour and my time is more limited, I need to figure things out how to best use my time for your benefit, and will then give a progress report some time in the spring. Till then, I encourage all those who do not yet financially support this ministry - yet find some benefit from it - to likewise do so in order that it may continue to be helpful to you and countless others. See links at the bottom of this page to submit your contribution.

Apartment of St. Nektarios in Cairo

During his lifetime, St. Nektarios served the Patriarchate of Alexandria and had his residence there while Bishop of Pentapolis. He was slandered against and deposed from his office by the Patriarchate of Alexandria, but in formal ceremonies his honor was restored in 1998, and in 1999 an entire year was dedicated to him.

Below are some photos of the Patriarchate of Alexandria, inside of which was the apartment of St. Nektarios. It is kept today as a sacred shrine dedicated to the Saint with certain relics and belongings of his, such as his vestments, his episcopal crown, his bed, his monastic schema and his prayer rope.
