During the Apostles’ Fast, we have the chance to remember several of the Apostles…not just St. Peter and St. Paul at the conclusion of the Fast. Today is the feast day for both St. Barnabas and St. Bartholomew.
As I read through the book of Acts with my children this month, it’s such a pleasure to have the opportunity to remember the feast day of some of the individual Apostles we’re reading about. (St. Jude will be remembered on June 19th as well)
Troparion – Tone 3
Holy Apostles Bartholomew and Barnabas,
entreat the merciful God
to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.
