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 9: $2680)

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.
