St. Raphael of Brooklyn

February 27 is his Feastday

St. Raphael Hawaweeny was the first Bishop to be consecrated on American soil.  He was a tireless missionary to the newly arrived Orthodox in America.  He fell asleep on February 27, 1915.

Your proclamation has gone forth throughout North America, calling the scattered sheep into the unity of the church.
hearing your voice, they responded to your teaching,  and through your writings you instructed them in piety.
now guided by your example, O Father Raphael,  we sing hymns of praise unto Christ our God.
Glory to Him Who gave you strength!   Glory to Him Who granted you a crown!  Glory to Him Who, through you, grants healing to all!
Troparion
