Memorable Manitobans: Stefan Ustvolsky “Bishop Seraphim” (?-?)

Cleric.

Little is known about his early life. He came to the United States in 1903, claiming to have been consecrated by a dissident Russian orthodox patriarch, and moved to Winnipeg in 1903, where he soon established the All-Russian Patriarchal Orthodox Church, independent of both Catholic and Orthodox control. Within a few years he left for Russia, and upon his return without legitimacy or funds his church disintegrated. He returned to Russia for good in 1908.
