Bishop Mitrophan of Boston (Znosko-Borovsky)

Mitrophan Znosko-Borovsky was born into the family of a parish priest on August 17 (August 4 O.S.), 1909, in the city of Brest-Litovsk (at that time a part of the Russian Empire).

He studied at the Theological Faculty of Warsaw University, then transferred to the Theological Faculty of Belgrade University as a recipient of a scholarship from the Serbian Patriarch Varnava.

Mitrophan was ordained to priesthood on June 12th, 1936, a short while earlier he married his matushka, Alexandra Semenovna Tsibrouk.

Throughout the years, Fr. Mitrophan served in the following parishes:

Dormition Parish in the village of Omelenets, Byelorussia (1936-38); Saint Nicholas Brotherhood Church in Brest-Litovsk (1938-44); wartime travels in Germany and Austria, and Camp Moenchehof (1944-48); Dormition Church in Casablanca (1948-59); Saint Seraphim of Sarov Church in Sea Cliff, New York, U.S.A. (1959-2002).

In 1989, Father Mitrophan's matushka, Alexandra Semenovna, passed away. Father Mitrophan was called to become a bishop in 1990, but denied his lot a few times before finally agreeing. He was consecrated to bishop in Montreal on November 24, 1992. He became the vicar of the Eastern American Diocese of ROCOR with the title of Bishop of Boston.

On the morning of February 15, 2002, on the feast of the Meeting of the Lord, Bishop Mitrophan reposed following a short illness.
