Anatolii Pavlovich Timofievich was Russian physician. He was raised in the Kiev Caves Lavra in Russia. From childhood he dedicated
his life to God, and used medicine as a way of serving the Church. While in medical school, Timofievich spent his time studying
in the Lavra. From his student years Anatoly Pavlovich was the spiritual son and a member of the Christian commune of Father
Adrian Rymarenko (later Archbishop Andrew). When Fr. Adrian founded the New Diveyevo Convent in upstate New York, Anatolii
Pavlovich moved into a house right next door, and was the personal physician of Fr. Adrian. Being in very poor health, Fr.
Adrian would serve at the altar only under Anatolii Pavlovich Timofievich’s personal supervision. Anatolii Pavlovich Timofievich
spent his life under Fr. Adrian’s spiritual guidance, and was finally buried by Fr. Adrian in 1976.
