Commemorated on May 11, March 11
The Relics of the Monk Sophronii were buried in the Farther Cave of the Kievo-Pechersk monastery. In the Kanon to the monks of the Farther Caves it gives an account of the hermit's deed as an holy ascetic, – being deemed worthy of hearing angelic singing. The memory of Saint Sophronii is done separately on 11 March.
