Fr. Alexandrof was soon moved from Holy Trinity in Chicago and eventually moved to Holy Trinity Cathedral in San Francisco, where he became head priest. In 1917, his wife, Rose, ran off with the assistant priest, Rev. Vasily Dvornikoff. They also absconded with $19,000 of the Alexandrofs' money, and tried to escape to Buenos Aires. Dvornikoff was arrested upon arrival to Argentina, and the pair were both sent back to the United States. In the meantime, Fr. Alexandrof made a desperate plea for his wife to return, which was published in the newspapers.
(Holy Trinity in San Francisco would soon have a new priest, Fr. Vladimir Sakovich, who discovered that the Cathedral was deeply in debt - including taxes that hadn't been paid, resulting in the State taking deed of the land - and needed immediate assistance of the bishop [[Alexander_%28Nemolovsky%29_of_Brussels|Archbishop Alexander (Nemolovsky) ]] was needed in order to save the Cathedral. )
