Monthly Church Programme
Synaxis of the Holy, Glorious and All-Praised Twelve Apostles 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 and Paul. The holy God-crowned Emperor Constantine the Great (May 21) built a church in Constantinople in honor of the Twelve Apostles. There are instructions for celebrating this Feast which date from the fourth century.
Apolytikion of Synaxis of the 12 Apostles
Third Tone
O Holy Apostles, intercede to our merciful God, that He may grant our souls forgiveness of sins.
Kontakion of Synaxis of the 12 Apostles
Second Tone
O Lord, receive the steadfast and divinely voiced preachers, the pinnacle of Your disciples, unto
their rest and the enjoyment of Your blessings. You received, above every offering, their labors
and their life. You alone know what the heart holds.
