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 10th Century Church of Saint Paul in Sfakia, Crete

On picturesque Agios Pavlos beach in Sfakia, Crete stands a tenth century church dedicated to the Apostle Paul. This church was built by St. John the Stranger, who built other monasteries and churches in the area, to commemorate the baptisms performed by St. Paul in this area on his way to Rome.

The church is cruciform in shape and built from stones found on the beach. The frescoes date to approximately the thirteenth century.
