His Eminence, the Most Reverend Apollinary (Koshevoy) of San Francisco was the Archbishop of San Francisco and Western America in the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR) during the late 1920s and early 1930s. {{stub]]


Bishop Apollinary was born in 1874. Upon his arrival in the United States, he was assigned as Bishop of Winnipeg in Canada from 1924 to 1925 under the jurisdiction of the missionary Russian Orthodox Diocese of North America and Canada (Metropolia), now the Orthodox Church in America. In 1926, he was assigned as Archbishop of San Francisco with his cathedra at Holy Trinity Cathedral.

After a dispute in early 1927 over relations between the Metropolia and the ROCOR, Abp. Apollinary moved under the jurisdiction of ROCOR. With his departure from the Metropolia, he founded, on June 2, 1927, a separate parish in San Francisco that became the Holy Virgin Cathedral, formally, the Cathedral of the Mother of God “Joy of All Who Sorrow”. Abp. Apollinary served as the ROCOR Archbishop of San Francisco until his repose on June 19, 1933.
