Fr John Kedrovsky
« on: August 17, 2009, 10:01:07 AM »
Can anyone give me information on the infamous Fr John Kedrovsky?  He was Russian priest working in America around the time of the revolution in that country.  He then became a priest, and later bishop, for the "Living Church" movement in America. He was successful in unfortunately seizing control of the St Nicholas Cathedral in NYC for a time which served as his episcopal headquarters.

Does anyone know what ever became of him?  Did he ever reconcile with the canonical Orthodox Church of Russia?  Where is he buried at?

Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.
