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)

The Gifts of the Magi Brought to Aitoloakarnanias (Photos / Video)



On Thursday evening December 20, 2012 a portion of the Honorable Gifts of the Three Magi were brought by Athonite monks from the Holy Monastery of Saint Paul on Mount Athos to the Metropolis of Aitolia and Akarnanias. They were received in a special ceremony by the chancellor of the Metropolis of Aitolia and Akarnanias, Fr. Epiphanios, amidst a large crowd of faithful, priests and dignitaries. A procession then brought the Holy Relics to the Church of Saint Nicholas where a Doxology took place at 5:00 PM which was followed by Compline.

The Holy Relics will remain in this church until December 27th, at which time they will be returned to Mount Athos.
