The V. Rev. Raphael Morgan was a Jamaican-American priest of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, later the founder and superior of the Order of the Cross of Golgotha, and thought to be the first black Orthodox clergyman in America. Having recently been discovered, his life has garnered great interest, but much of his life still remains shrouded in mystery.
