Alexius, Hermit of 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 St Alexius is celebrated on
April 24, because his relics rest beside the relics of St 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).
