Hymns

Troparion (Tone 3)

O holy apostle Timon,
Entreat the merciful God,
To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion (Tone 1)

You were holy deacons and eye-witnesses of the Word,
And chosen vessel of the faith,
O glorious Nicanor, Prochorus, Parmenas and Timon.
Therefore today we celebrate your sacred memory,
Blessing you in gladness of heart.
