Without financial supporters of the Mystagogy Resource Center, it would not exist. One long time supporter is currently facing a crisis of being evicted from her home and having her car repossessed. She and her family need help by this coming Tuesday to prevent this, at least $2,000 is needed. Please help me to give back to her. She would like to remain anonymous, so she asked that any financial aid can be sent through this ministry, which will then be directed to her. Thank you for helping with what you can.

Holy Three Hundred and Sixty-Six Martyrs of Nicomedia

Holy 366 Martyrs of Nicomedia (Feast Day - August 31)


The decapitated multitude carries a leap year,
Binding to completion this year of writing.

The Holy Three Hundred and Sixty-Six Martyrs of Nicomedia met their end by a sword.


* The Synaxarion of Constantinople comes to an end with this commemoration, being the last day of the ecclesiastical year, equating the 366 Martyrs with a leap year, since in a leap year there are 366 days, and the calendar of the Church reflects the possibility of a leap year, since even in a leap year the extra day, which is February 29th, also requires a commemoration. Thus the year of the Lord has come to a completion.
