Life of St. Raphael

Kazan Theological Seminary - Well, first - how's your Russian, because this page is NOT in English. But, you can browse and look at pictures. Anyway, this is the page for the re-built seminary of Kazan at which St. Raphael taught while in Russia.

Orthodox Diocese

Antiochian Archdiocese of North America - Under Metropolitan Philip (Saliba), all of the older parishes of this diocese were founded by St. Raphael. All of the existing parishes that he founded are in this diocese now. The archdiocese received its autonomy from the Patriarchate of Antioch in the Summer of 2002. You can find a number of texts concerning St. Raphael here.

Orthodox Church in America - Under Metropolitan Herman, this jurisdiction is the successor to the diocese that St. Raphael was under when he worked in the United States. It is now an autocephalous church, since receiving autocephaly from the Patriarchate of Moscow in 1971. The OCA was the jurisdiction which glorified St. Raphael. There are a number of icons and musical arrangements and texts concerning St. Raphael here.

Patriarchate of Moscow - They DO have an abridged, English version of their site. St. Raphael died as an auxiliary bishop of the Patriarchate of Moscow, serving in the United States.

Unfortunately, the Patriarchate of Antioch does not seem to have a web site.
