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.

New Church Dedicated to St. Paisios the Athonite Consecrated in Syria

Yesterday, in the city of Jaramana, which is 10 kilometers southeast of the Syrian capital of Damascus, and consists primarily of a Christian and Druze population, Patriarch John X of Antioch and All the East consecrated the largest to date church dedicated to the recently canonized Saint Paisios the Athonite, to the great joy of the Orthodox Christian population, which celebrated not only inside the church but also in the streets. Together with the large crowd of believers and the Patriarch, there were also many other Orthodox Hierarchs and Clergy present, as well as representatives from other Christian bodies, the military and government.
