Upcoming Commemoration of Metropolitan Philaret of New York

On the twenty-fifth anniversary of the repose of Metropolitan Philaret (Voznesensky) of New York he will be remembered at the festal services for the Archangels by both the First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad and Bishop Jerome of Manhattan, who will serve at his crypt in the Jordanville Monastery. Metropolitan Philaret is widely venerated as a confessor, both within the Russian Orthodox Church and in other Local Orthodox Churches. His relics were also found to be incorrupt when they were translated to their present resting place in 2008.

The announcement on the upcoming services can be found here.
