Icons of St. Herman of Alaska, Monk, Missionary

Feast: Aug. 9, Dec. 12

Born in the Russian Empire, St. Herman became a monk at the great monastery of Valaam and later a missionary to Alaska. There, in America, he lived the rest of his life in asceticism, cared for the local Aleut people, and performed many miracles in life and death by the grace of God.  He was the first known saint of North America.  Holy Herman, pray to God for us!
