Dedication of the Church of St. George at Kiev (1037)
Troparion of St Innocent, Tone 4
O Holy Father Innocent,/ in obedience to the will of God/ you accepted dangers and tribulations,/ bringing many peoples to the knowledge of truth./ You showed us the path;
now by your prayers help lead us/ into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Another Troparion of St Innocent, Tone 2
You evangelized the Northern people of America and Asia,/ proclaiming the Gospel of Christ to the natives in their own tongues,/ O Holy Hierarch, Father Innocent,/ Enlightener of Alaska and All America, whose ways were ordered by the Lord./ Pray to Him for the salvation of our souls in His Heavenly Kingdom.
Troparion of St. Stylian Tone 3
Holy Stylian, thou wast a tower of abstinence/ and an unshaken pillar of the Church./ Dedicated to God from thy youth,/ thou didst become a dwelling-place of the Spirit./ O righteous Father, intercede with Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.
Troparion of St. Nikon Tone 3
Sparta rejoices in holding the shrine of thy relics,/ a source of healing for those who run to thee./ Holy Nikon, intercede with Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.
Kontakion of St Innocent, Tone 2
Your life is a true celebration of the Providence and Grace of God,/ O Holy Father Innocent, the Apostle to our Land./ For in hardships and dangers toiling for the Gospel's sake,/ you were preserved unharmed and often delivered,/ while from obscurity you were highly exalted as an example to the faithful everywhere/ that the Lord truly guides a man in the way he should go.
Kontakion of St. Stylian Tone 4
Sanctified from the womb like another Samuel,/ thou didst glorify God by thy labours./ Thou didst become a healer/ and protector of Christ's babes and sucklings./ He has glorified thee, O Stylian.
Kontakion of St. Nikon Tone 6
Thou didst despise the world's delights,/ thou didst show us the path of repentance, emulating the Angelic life./ O Nikon, we praise thee and celebrate thy memory;/ thou art a fountain of healing.
