With the blessing of His Grace Metropolitan Anastassy the factory was founded in 1958 as an income generating subsiduary of the Synod of Bishops so the Church would be self-sufficient and would not have to depend on outside, secular sources of income.
In 1966, with the blessing of Metropolitan Philaret, St. Zosima Candles was decreed to be the sole source for purchasing candles for parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. This decision was reinforced by Metropolitan Vitaly in the year 2000, by Metropolitan Laurus in 2003 and by Metropolitan Hilarion in 2008.
