New Hieromartyr Archpriest '''Peter Skipetrov''' (†1918{{ru icon}}: Пётр Иванович Скипетров, July, 1863 - January 19, 1918) was the rector of the Church of Saints [[Boris and Gleb]], which was next to the famous chapel of the [[Theotokos]] "Joy of All Who Sorrow", in the Kalashnikov district of Petrograd.<ref group="note">In 1914 the name of the city was changed to Petrograd; in 1924 to Leningrad; and in 1991 back to Saint Petersburg.</ref> Hundreds of thousands of pilgrims flocked to the miracle-working [[icon]] of the [[Mother of God]], and Father Peter enjoyed great influence among the people and was a strong enemy of the communists, whose regime he boldly denounced in his [[Homily|sermons]]. He was martyred in 1918 at the time of the Russian Revolution by Bolshevik-affiliated soldiers. He is commemorated on [[February 1]].<ref>[ February 14 / February 1].

The funeral was solemnly triumphant, for it occurred during the [[Pascha|Paschal]] period and "[[Paschal greeting|Christ is risen!]]" was chanted. The [[Memorial Services|burial service]] was led by Metropolitan Benjamin, accompanied by a large number of clergy. The sermon was delivered by Fr. Philosoph (Ornatsky).
By the resolution of the Holy Synod of the [[Church of Russia|Russian Orthodox Church]] on December 26, 2001, his name was included among the [[New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia]].<ref>{{ru icon}} Russian Wikipedia: [,_%D0%9F%D1%91%D1%82%D1%80_%D0%98%D0%B2%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%B8%D1%87 Скипетров, Пётр Иванович].</ref>
