Our Holy Fathers Sabbatius and Zossima.

Commemorated April 17 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

These two were the founders of an ascetic community on the island of Solovetz in the White Sea. Many great saints were glorified in this community. St Sabbatius entered into rest in 1435, and St Zossima in 1478.
