Venerable Dalmatus the Ascetic of the Dalmatian Monastery at Constantinople

Commemorated on August 3

Saint Isaac (May 30) tonsured Sts Dalmatus and his son Faustus as monks in his monastery near Constantinople.

When St Isaac was approaching the end of his earthly life, he named St Dalmatus as igumen of the monastery, which later became known as the Dalmatian Monastery.

Troparion - Tone 4

O God of our Fathers,
always always act with kindness towards us;
take not Your mercy from us,
but guide our lives in peace
through the prayers of Venerable Isaac, Dalmátus, and Faustus.

Kontakion - Tone 2

Through asceticism you shone like lights in the world
and by your faith you overthrew heresies.
We praise you with hymns, Isaac, Dalmátus, and Faustus,
as servants of Christ who are praying for us all.
