Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

Holy Week and Pascha In Colombia

In an atmosphere of Christian brotherly love and solidarity Pascha was celebrated in the small community of Orthodox Christians in the city of Cucuta in Colombia. The young priest of the church, Fr. Timothy Torres, led the Holy Week and the Resurrection services in the small humble Orthodox church. And on Pascha Sunday there were celebrations with the elderly who found a warm hug and hospitality in a small nursing home supported by the Orthodox community.

In this community is proof that acts of love and strength are produced by those who have faith in God, even amidst extreme poverty, social problems, and the weather. It is significant that recently the area was affected by torrential rains and extreme weather events, further complicating the lives of ordinary people.
