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.

Newly Discovered Video of Smyrna Refugees In 1922



George Magarian and the YMCA - Smyrna, Athens, Pireaus - the Refugees of 1922

George Magarin was born in 1895 and graduated from the American College in Konya, Turkey. Later he worked for the YMCA in Konya. With a 35 mm camera he captured this footage which for over 85 years was unknown but to his wife living in New York. Finally in 2008 his grandson found it and had it restored so that we are able to view it today.
