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.

Synaxis of the Three Saints of Ypati


Ypati is a village and a former municipality in Phthiotis, Greece. The three Saints of Ypati are:

1. Holy Apostle Herodian, founder of the Church of Ypati, and who was martyred in Ypati (see Mar. 28 and Nov. 10).

2. Hieromartyr Gregory, Bishop of New Patras, who was slain during the Divine Liturgy in the Sacred Church of Saint Nicholas in Ypati, on the eve of the Akathist Hymn in the year 1711 (see the Sunday between Mar. 18 and 24).

3. Saint Athanasios, founder of the Monastery of Great Meteoron (see Apr. 20).

By decision of His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas of Fthiotida, the feast day for the three Saints was established for the first Sunday after the feast of the Leave-taking of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos. The Service of Praise was composed by the parish priest of the Sacred Church of Saint Nicholas in Ypati, Protopresbyter Fr. Demetrios Karayiannis, and it was immediately issued by the Sacred Metropolis of Fthiotida with the approval of the Sacred Synod of the Church of Greece.
