The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Cresecens is numbered among the Seventy Apostles. He was a companion of the Apostle Paul (I Timothy 4:10), and later was Bishop of Galatia. He was also a missionary in Gaul. It was there that he was martyred under Emperor Trajan, with Apostles Silas, Silvanus (Silouan), Epenetus, and Andronicus. The Church remembers St. Crescens on January 4 among the Seventy, and on July 30.
