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 Panagia Eleftherotria in Salamina

The Church of Panagia Eleftherotria (the Liberator) is located on the hill Patrice on the Saronic island of Salamina. The church was a solemn promise of the island's people for their liberation from the Germans in World War 2. At this hill many were killed because the hill was a minefield.

In 1998 the church was built over the ruins of a German gun emplacement, in commemoration of the liberation of the island from the Germans on October 12, 1944. For this reason the church was named Eleftherotria (the woman who liberates) and it is celebrated on October 12.
