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 Hermitage of the Panagia of Grava in Patmos

The Hermitage of the Panagia of Grava is built on the west side of Chora in between the hill of Kalamoti and the Evangelismos Convent. It was founded around 1790 from the monk Gregory of Nisyros (April 22), the monk Niphonas and other monks, who fled Mount Athos during the Kollyvades controversy and ended up on Patmos. The small church is dedicated to the Dormition of the Theotokos and celebrates on the apodosis of the feast, which is the 23rd of August, every year.
