WHO WE ARE
The St. John Kochurov Society was founded in 2009 and exists to carry on St. John's legacy of support for youth programs and education, mission parish life, and the monastic tradition of our Church. The society is a daughter organization of the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America (ROCOR) under the rule of His Eminence Archbishop Peter.
St. John Kochurov was a missionary priest in the American Mid-West and served the Russian Church in Chicago for several years before returning to his homeland and becoming the first priest-martyr under the Bolsheviks in 1917. He earned renown as loving pastor, fervent teacher, and charitable steward. His life is a spiritual treasury for all Orthodox Christians who labor in the field of God's harvest!
"Holy Father John, pray to God for us!"
