American Saints - St Innocent, Metropolitan of Moscow and Enlightener of the Aleuts, Apostle to the Americas
Leading up to the Feast of All Saints of North America, which this year falls on Sunday, June 18, each day of the week we will post a life of one of these saints.
St Innocent followed in the footsteps of St Herman by selflessly serving the Aleuts, building churches, educating them and translating the Bible and other books into their native language.
We celebrate his memory twice - on April 13, which is the day of his repose, and on October 6, when he was canonized.
Unless otherwise specified, the articles here are posted by Father Aleksey, who has no sense of humor and is extremely straight forward.
