Venerable Demetrios the Skeuophylax

St. Demetrios the Skeuophylax (Feast Day - January 25)


Demetrios was not of things earthly,
Looking towards the delights of the immaterial abode.

On this day we commemorate Venerable Demetrios the Skeuophylax, which means he was probably a deacon who was a keeper of the sacred vessels of the church, perhaps the one mentioned under Patrairch Tarasios in the late eighth century.
