In the Orthodox Church in America (OCA), Saint Raphael of Brooklyn is commemorated on February 27th, the date of his repose. In Antiochian practice, the commemoration of Saint Raphael of Brooklyn is observed on the Saturday before the Synaxis of the Bodiless Powers (November 8), which means that it may fall between November 1 and 7.
