1st Saturday in November

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. The Orthodox Church in America (OCA) celebrates St. Raphael on February 27th, the date of his repose.
