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 and Evangelist Matthew is also commemorated on November 16.
For lists of the Apostles’ names, see: Mt.10:2, Mark 3:14, Luke 6:12, Acts 1:13, 26.
