The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Achaicus of the Seventy is commemorated by the Church on January 4 with the Seventy.

Saint Achaicus is mentioned by St Paul in I Corinthians 16:17, saying, I am glad of the coming of Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. For they have refreshed my spirit, and yours.


Troparion (Tone 3) [1]

Holy apostle Achaicus of the Seventy;
Entreat the merciful;
To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion (Tone 4)

The Church ever sees you as a shining star, O apostle Achaicus,
Your miracles have manifested great enlightenment.
Therefore we cry out to Christ:
"Save those who with faith honor Your apostle, O Most Merciful One."
