It is celebrated on April 27 of each year.
Saint Evlogios lived in the parts of Thebaid, Egypt. His profession was a quarryman (stone cutter) and he was called an Innkeeper, because throughout his life his main concern and pleasure was to host in his home and to provide all help to the poor and travelers. Despite his heavy and arduous work, in the evening, as soon as he finished his work, he would run to the market, holding a lantern in the winter, and look for strangers, to give them shelter and any other hospitality. He even once hosted Abba Daniel with his subordinate, when they went down to the city and were left without bread and shelter.
Saint Evlogios lived over a hundred years, benefiting his fellow men and died peacefully.
