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.

Photos Associated With St. John of Kronstadt Today

In the basement chapel of the Convent of Saint John of Rila in St. Petersburgh, which was founded by St. John of Kronstadt, there can be found the tomb of St. John of Kronstadt. It is said that his body was hidden years ago for fear the communists may steal his body, and till this day the location of his body is not known.

This is the apartment building of St. John in Kronstadt, which today has been made into a museum. In the courtyard stands a statue in his honor. He lived on the first floor.

The Central Park on Lenin Road in Kronstadt, where the church was once located in which St. John of Kronstadt served his daily services, but it was destroyed by the communists. Today it is commemorated by a plaque.
