Our righteous father Maxim Sandovich (also Maximus) of Gorlice, Protomartyr of the Lemko people, was a Carpatho-Russian hieromartyr who, in practicing his Orthodox faith as priest under the rule of the Unia, as enforced by the Roman Catholic Austrian imperial government, was arrested and then executed for his faith in August 1914. His feast days are celebrated on August 6 (repose) and September 6 (glorification).
"Under the rule of the Unia, as enforced by ..."
The way this is written is slightly misleading I suppose and can lead to confusion.

His only living relative is a priest in the Russian chuch, I believe. I found a note from him on a web site that states that the actual date for his death and glorification is incorrect ... namely, many of us believe that his Feast Day is Agusut 6 when infact, he died and was glorified September.
I suppose this clarification would be appreciated by one of the clergy who can confirm what the dates are ... OrthodoxWiki states death August 6 (which his relative insists is incorrect date) and that glorification is September but not his feast day .. that it is Aug 6 (which again the relative states should be September).
Can someone help with this matter? I am also going to send the "relative" a private message because he is clergy, I believe, of the Russian Church so I will ask him if this is a widely accepted date by the actual church that canonised St Maxim.

He was glorified in 1994 by the Polish Orthodox Church, with the presence of bishops of the Church of Constantinople (Metropolitan Nicholas of Amissos), Czech-Slovakia (Archbishop Nicholas of Preshov and Slovakia), and OCA (Archbishop Herman of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania). ROCOR, at that time, not in communion with canonical Orthodoxy, did its own glorification in 1996.
His feast day is on Aug 24 whenever you think it is.
