Commemorated on June 30
The Synaxis of the Glorious and All-Praiseworthy Twelve Apostles of
Christ appears to be an ancient Feast. The Church honors each of the
Twelve Apostles on separate dates during the year, and has established a
general commemoration for all of them on the day after the
commemoration of the Glorious and First-Ranked among the Apostles Peter
The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Thomas is also commemorated on October 6 and
on the Sunday after Pascha.
For lists of the Apostles’ names, see: Mt.10:2, Mark 3:14, Luke 6:12, Acts 1:13, 26.
First-enthroned of the apostles, / teachers of the universe: / Entreat
the Master of all / to grant peace to the world, / and to our souls
KONTAKION- TONE 2
Today Christ the Rock glorifies with highest honor / The rock of Faith
and leader of the Apostles, / Together with Paul and the company of the
twelve, / Whose memory we celebrate with eagerness of faith, / Giving
glory to the one who gave glory to them!
