  Pray - Hieromonk Raphael

Keston College has received a report that Hieromonk Raphael, brother of Alexander Ogorodnikov, has been expelled from the Pskov diocese, where he had been a monk in the Pskov Caves Monastery. After Alexander's trial, Fr. Raphael asked the authorities for permission to visit his brother in prison and give him Holy Communion. This request was refused. It is reported that Fr. Raphael is presently living somewhere near Moscow.
