Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!

Translation of the Sacred Relics of Saint Anthimos of Chios in 1965

Translation of the Relics of St. Anthmos of Chios (Feast Day - September 3)

Our Venerable Father Anthimos of Chios reposed in peace before sunrise on February 15, 1960 at the age of 91. The next day his body was buried on the grounds of the monastery he established in Chios, the Monastery of Panagia Voithia, in a grave next to the church, near a pine tree he himself had planted.

The translation of his sacred relics took place on September 3, 1965, which was the feast of his patron saint, the Holy Martyr Anthimos of Nicomedia, as well as the feast of the Translation of the Sacred Relics of Saint Nektarios of Aegina. A large number of people gathered for the event and to venerate his sacred relics, which were brought into the Holy Sanctuary and placed to the right of the Holy Altar.
