==Early Life==
Archimandrite Peter was born Propkopy Prokopy Feodorovich Zaichenko in what was then the Ekaterinoslav region of Russia and is now Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine February 26, 1885. His father died when he was quite young, leaving his mother with several children to take care of. On a pilgrimage to Kiev, a church elder told his mother that young Prokopy should be dedicated to the service of God and enter a monastery, which he did in 1896, though he would not be tonsured a monk until 24 March 1911. Since it was the feast day of St. Peter of Kazan, he was given the name Peter.
