St. Alexis the Recluse of the Kiev Near Caves

Saint Alexis, Hermit of the Caves, lived a life of asceticism in the Near Caves of the Kiev Caves monastery during the thirteenth century. His relics were uncovered after 1675. The memory of Saint Alexis is celebrated on April 24, because his relics rest beside the relics of Saint Sava of Caves. His memory is also celebrated on the Synaxis of the Monastic Fathers of the Near Caves (September 28) and on the Synaxis of all the Wonderworkers of the Kiev Caves (Second Sunday of Great Lent).
