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.

The Monastery of Venerable David of Evia

The Monastery of Venerable David is dedicated to the Transfiguration of the Savior, yet associated with Saint David who lived his monastic life here in the 16th century. The feast of Saint David is November 1st and the Transfiguration is celebrated on August 6th. Within the church are the relics of St. David, his censor, his priestly stole, and other treasures. South of the Monastery is the cave of St. David, amidst many other chapels dedicated to various saints. 1,000 kilometers north of the Monastery is the Holy Spring, which according to tradition was created by St. David when he hit a rock with his cane.
