Anatolii Pavlovich Timofievich was a Russian physician. He was raised in the Kiev Caves Lavra in Russia. Since 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. During his student years Anatolii 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 next door, and was the personal physician to 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.
