Metropolitan Joseph (Petrovykh, 1870?-1938) was a vicar of Petrograd and was transferred in 1926 to Odessa. He refused to move from his see and was martyred by the communists after a series of imprisonments for not recognizing the declaration of Metropolitan Sergius as valid. He was widely regarded as the most vocal leader of the Catacomb Church in Russia Her formative years. He was glorified as a New Martyr by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, but his glorification has not been recognized by the Patriarchate of Russia.
