The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Erastus is numbered among the Seventy Apostles. He was the steward of the Church at Jerusalem and later of Paneas in Palestine. The Church remembers St. Erastus on November 10.
- Holy Apostles, Erastus, Olympas, Herodion, Sosipater, Quartus and Tertius,
- entreat the merciful God,
- to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.
Kontakion (Tone 2)
- Illumined by divine light, O holy apostles,
- you wisely destroyed the works of idolatry.
- When you caught all the pagans you brought them to the Master
- and taught them to glorify the Trinity.
