Of these holy Apostles, Stachys became the first Bishop of Byzantium, consecrated
by the Apostle Andrew. Having sherpherded his people for sixteen years,
he reposed in the Lord. As for the others, each one shone forth in
the episcopal see appointed to him.
Apolytikion in the Third Tone:
O Holy Apostles, intercede to our merciful God, that He may grant our
souls forgiveness of sins.
Kontakion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
Come, let us duly praise Apelles and famed Aristobulus, the wise Apostles,
with Urban, Narcissus and Stachys, and blessed Amplias, as the most
sacred treasures of the All-holy Spirit and the far-shining beams
of Christ, the Sun of Glory, whom God brought together by His grace.
