Many believers fled to a nearby island to get away from the enraged king, but as he chased them his boat sank. The new king embraced the Christian faith and in baptism received the name Sebastian. From then on Sts. Sosipater and Jason freely preached the [[Gospel]] and built up the Church in Corfu until a very old age, when they gave up their souls to God. St. Sosipater's [[feast day]]s are [[November 10]] and [[April 28]].
