Venerable Sisoes the Recluse of the Kiev Near Caves

Saint Sisoes (13th century) was a hermit of the Near Caves in Kiev. He struggled at the Kiev Caves monastery and was buried in the Near Caves.

In the general service for the Fathers of the Kiev Caves, Saint Sisoes is called “radiant in fasting.”

The general commemoration of all the Fathers of the Near Caves takes place on September 28 and on the second Sunday of Great Lent.
