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.

Muslim Donates Free Fish To Orthodox Church In Rhodes

The Church of Saint Panteleimon in Rhodes annually gives fish out for free to the people before Palm Sunday, a fasting day in which fish is allowed by Orthodox Christians.

Yesterday, 11 April 2011, one ton of fish was distributed for the feast. Since last year four tons was distributed, they will attempt for another catch sometime this week.

The parish priest of St. Panteleimon Church in the interview below for Kosmos television said that the church is there to help the people for 365 days of the year, and thanked the fisherman, a Muslim man, who for the past four years has donated these fish to the parish of St. Panteleimon in anticipation of Palm Sunday.
