Righteous Prokopii of Ust'yansk
Commemorated on July 8
of Ust'yansk (XVII): The undecayed relics of Righteous Prokopii were

of God church in Vologda diocese and placed in the church, where over the
course of two hundred years they remained in open view, a source of numerous
healings. About the origin and life of the holy saint of God no account has
been preserved. His name became known when he himself revealed it in a vision
to a pious local inhabitant named Savela.
