It is celebrated on May 6 of each year.
Saint Seraphim (his worldly name was Sotiris) was born in the village of Zeli in Boeotia, to pious and virtuous parents, who nurtured him with the teachings of the Gospel, therefore from an early age the saint had an inclination to study the Holy Scriptures and the ascetic life. At a young age and despite the temporary refusal of his parents, he went to the Monastery of the Prophet Elias, on Mount Karkara, where he built a temple in the name of Christ the Savior and lived as an ascetic there.
Soon his fame became known and he began to have frequent visits from his parents, friends and devout believers, who resorted to the saint for advice and help. For this reason he left his beloved cave and went to the monastery of Aghii Anargyro.
He quickly left this Monastery and went to the Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Saviour, on Mount Sagamatios, between Boeotia and Evia. There he quickly shone as a spiritual star of the first magnitude and the abbot made him a monk, giving him the name Seraphim. He was later ordained a deacon and elder.
A little later and in order to avoid vanity due to the reputation of his virtues, he asked the abbot’s permission and left the Monastery of his penitence and arrived west of Helikon, at the site of Dombos, where he built a temple of Sotiros, some cells and called to him some monks. There he lived as an ascetic for ten years, teaching the other monks the salutary teachings of the monastic life.
She fell asleep at the age of 75, on May 6, 1602 AD. on the day of Mid-Pentecost at 6 o’clock in the afternoon, after having foreseen his falling asleep and receiving communion of the Immaculate Mysteries.
