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.

The Skull of Saint Tryphon in Kastania of Agrafa

A portion of the skull of Saint Tryphon is kept in the village of Kastania in Agrafa of Northern Greece. According to written records and oral tradition, pious Orthodox residents purchased the holy relic from robbers during the Turkish occupation, and they placed it in the now ruined Monastery of Saint Tryphon in the village of Moucha. Today it is kept in the Church of the Nativity of the Theotokos in Kastania. There he is annually celebrated on his feast day, February 1, works miracles such as the driving away of pests from the fields, and is regarded as their patron saint.
