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 4: $1750)

Groundbreaking For Church Dedicated To Hieromartyr Gregory V in Dimitsana


July 7, 2011
Arcadia Voice

Yesterday at 7:00 pm before a large gathering of the faithful, clergy and hierarchs, there took place the groundbreaking ceremony for a sacred church dedicated to the martyr Saint Gregory V who was hung by the Turks on Pascha of 1821. It is the first church built in honor of Saint Gregory V in our land, and naturally it is here where he was born and walked his first steps in Dimitsana, as Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Patras said emotionally following his presiding over the Divine Liturgy prior to the groundbreaking.
