The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Aristobulus (also Aristovoulos) is numbered among the Seventy Apostles. Along with the Apostles Urban, Stachys, Narcissus, Apelles and Amplias he assisted the Apostle Andrew. St. Aristobulus was also the brother of the Apostle Barnabas. He preached the Gospel in Britain as its first bishop and there he reposed peacefully in the Lord. His feast days are celebrated on March 16, on October 31 with Amplias, Apelles, Stachys, Urban, and Narcissus, and on January 4 with the Seventy.
