After returning to Russia, Fr. John was one of the first priests martyred in the Bolshevik Revolution. In 1994, he was glorified as a saint in the Orthodox Church. In acknowledgement of the 20th anniversary of the glorification of Archpriest John Kochurov’s sainthood (December 4, 1994), Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral will host several events from October 30-November 2.
