The holy Apostle Hermes is numbered among the Seventy Apostles. He is commemorated by the Church on January 4.

The Apostle Andrew consecrated St Philologus (Romans 16:15) as bishop of the city of Sinope (in the Black Sea region). He is also commemorated on November 5 together with Sts Patrobas, Hermes, Linus, and Gaius.


Troparion (Tone 3)

Holy apostle Philologus 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 Philologus,
Your miracles have manifested great enlightenment.
Therefore we cry out to Christ:
"Save those who with faith honor Your apostle, O Most Merciful One."
