St Niphon, Bishop of Novgorod
(April 8)

He was adorned with zeal in the building and repairing of churches and with great courage in opposing tyrannical princes. Thirteen days before his death, St Theodosius appeared to him and predicted his imminent departure to the other world. He entered into rest in 1156.
