[[Image:Prochororus the deacon.JPG|frame|right|Prochororus Prochorus the Deacon]]The Holy holy, glorious and all-laudable '''Apostle Prochorus''' of the [[Apostle|Seventy]] was among the first [[deacon]]s in the Church along with [[Apostle Stephen the Protomartyr|Stephen]], [[Apostle Philip (of the Seventy)|Philip]], [[Apostle Parmenas|Parmenas]], [[Apostle Nicanor|Nicanor]], [[Apostle Timon |Timon ]] and Nicholas. Although they died at various times and in various places, they are commemorated together on [[July 28]]. St . Prochorus is also commemorated on [[January 4]] with the [[Synaxis]] of the 70 Holy Apostles.
In the [[Acts of the Holy Apostles]] (6:1-6) it is said that the twelve [[Apostle]]s chose seven men full of the [[Holy Spirit]] and wisdom, and appointed them to serve as deacons.
St . Prochorus at first accompanied the holy [[Apostle Peter]] and was made by him [[bishop]] in the city of [[Nicomedia]]. After the [[Dormition]] of the Most Holy [[Theotokos]], Prochorus was a companion and coworker of the holy [[Apostle John]] the [[Theologian]] and was banished to the island of Patmos together with him. There Apostle and Evangelist John wrote down the [[Book of Revelation]] concerning the final fate of the world. Upon returning to Nicomedia, St . Prochorus converted pagans to [[Christ ]] in the city of Antioch and there he received a [[martyr]]'s crown.
