St. Alexander of Munich to be Glorified
It has been decided that the formal glorification of the Holy New Martyr Alexander (Schmorell) of Munich will take place with the participation of hierarchs of the Russian Orthodox Church and the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR) in the latter's diocesan cathedral in Munich this coming February. St. Alexander was a faithful member of the ROCOR who helped found an anti-Hitler resistance group during World War II, for which he was martyred. More on the upcoming glorification can be found here.
