Candle will be placed before Icon of Holy Hierarch John of Shanghai and San Francisco (+1966) – Icon with a piece of his relic.
As bishop, St. John selflessly cared for his flock in many different lands as they escaped the Russian Revolution and communist persecutions of Christians. He was a strict ascetic, but also a very kind, generous and loving hierarch. He most noted for building the cathedral in San Francisco where his holy relics are kept. By his intercessions, many receive a great variety of miracles to this day.
