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!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

The House Where St. Nikephoros the Leper Was Born and Raised


The hometown of Saint Nikephoros the Leper is Sirikari, a small mountain village located in western Crete, in the regional unit of Chania. His home still exists and is often visited by pilgrims. Since his canonization the house has been renovated and turned into a shrine. Nearby a church was also built dedicated to him, which was consecrated on October 2, 2018.
