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.

Pontian Greek Genocide Remembrance


May 19th is the memorial day for the victims innocently killed in Pontos.

The Pontian Greek Genocide was enacted by the Turks who were acting under the leadership of the mass murderer Kemal Ataturk.

Records kept mainly by priests show a minimum 350,000 Pontian Greeks exterminated through systematic slaughter by Turkish troops. Other estimates, including those of foreign missionaries, spoke of 500,000 deaths.
