According to an old manuscript calendar, “The Monk Methodios, the Igumen (and founder) of Peshnosha Monastery, the disciple of Saint Sergius the wonderworker, reposed in the summer of 6900 (1392), on the fourteenth day of June.”

Saint Methodios was regarded as a saint at Peshnosha from the day of his death, and his memory was celebrated at the monastery and in the surrounding villages on June 14, on the same day as Saint Methodios, Patriarch of Constantinople.
