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.

March 16, 2011

A joint meeting of representatives of the Inter-Orthodox Relations with the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece was held today, Wednesday March 16, in the Synodal Hall.

The committee consists of the Metropolitans Meletios of Nicopolis (Chairman), Ignatius of Dimitriados, Chrysostomos of Messinia, Bishop John of Thermopylae and Prof. Martzelos.

Information from "" indicates that after thorough discussion, they decided that the Church of Greece will continue participating in the World Council of Churches and other inter-Christian forums.

Please note that, despite recent statements by the Metropolitans of the Church of Greece to withdraw from the WCC, it was finally decided to have more comprehensive information from the Hierarchs and the fullness of the Church.

Lastly, at this time the Holy Synod is meeting with teachers of the Theological Schools.
