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.

News from the Orthodox Diocese of Burundi and Rwanda:

Today on 17th August 2014, His Grace Bishop Innocentios Byakatonda has baptized 200 people in the Nyamazi River located in the Kirehe District of the Eastern Province of Rwanda. After the baptism His Grace Bishop Innocentios conducted the Divine Liturgy in that valley where over 800 people were present.

After all ceremonies had been concluded, there was a friendly football (soccer) match between the Rurenge team and the Kaziba youth Orthodox team at Rurenge Stadium.

In this community of Kaziba, more people wish to be baptized (more than 2000 people, according to Bishop Innocentios) but there are also more needs: to catechize them, to build a church and a priest. On 09/14/2014, Deacon Maximos will be ordained as their priest.
