St. John Maximovitch

Our father among the saints John (Maximovitch), Archbishop of Shanghai and San Francisco (1896-1966), was a diocesan bishop of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR), serving widely, from China to France to the United States.

He departed this life on June 19 (O.S.) or July 2 (N.S.), 1966, and was officially canonized by the ROCOR on July 2, 1994. His feast day is not yet celebrated by all Orthodox churches, though many will nonetheless refer to him with the title Blessed or even Saint.
