Hymns

Troparion (Tone 3)

Holy Apostles of the Seventy: Stáchys, Amplías, Úrban, Narcíssus, Apélles, and Aristobúlus,
Eentreat the merciful God
To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion (Tone 8)

Let us thankfully praise the wise Apostles
Stáchys, Amplías, Úrban, Narcíssus, Apélles, and Aristobúlus,
Those treasures of the Holy Spirit and rays of the Sun of glory,
Who were gathered together by the grace of our God.
