Troparion — Tone 3

Holy Apostles, Erastus, Olympas, Herodion, Sosipater, Quartus and Tertius, / entreat the merciful God, / to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Illumined by divine light, O holy apostles, / you wisely destroyed the works of idolatry. / When you caught all the pagans you brought them to the Master / and taught them to glorify the Trinity.
