The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Fortunatus of the Seventy is commemorated by the Church on June 15 with Achaicus and Stephen, and on January 4 with the Seventy. The Seventy Apostles were chosen and sent forth to preach by Christ (Luke 10:1).

St. Fortunatus is mentioned by St Paul in I Corinthians 16:17: I was glad when Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus arrived, because they have supplied what was lacking from you.


Troparion (Tone 3) [1]

Holy apostle Fortunatus of the Seventy;
Eentreat the merciful;
To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion (Tone 4 )

The Church ever sees you as a shining star, O apostle Fortunatus,
Your miracles have manifested great enlightenment.
Therefore we cry out to Christ:
"Save those who with faith honor Your apostle, O Most Merciful One."
