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.

Old Calendarists Uniting

In an effort to become a united voice against the "heresy" of ecumenism which they associate with the united canonical ancient patriarchal Churches, the two schismatic Old Calendarist groups known as the Holy Synod of Resistance and the Genuine Orthodox Church of Greece have announced at the completion of their dialogue yesterday that they are uniting. The long term goal is to unite all the Old Calendarist groups not in communion with the "official" Churches to enter a new phase of a common witness of "genuine" Orthodoxy, since the Old Calendarist movement has been known to splinter even among themselves into various self-contained groups. To express their common goal, they will soon issue a joint statement on ecclesiology and a condemnation of ecumenism. They will officially enter into liturgical communion this Sunday, which is the Sunday of the Veneration of the Holy Cross, in the Monastery of St. Nicholas in Paiania, presided over by Archbishop Kallinikos of Athens and All-Greece, who is the Archbishop of the schismatic Genuine Orthodox Church of Greece.
