Troparion of St. Cyriaca Tone 5
O Virgin Martyr Cyriaca,/ thou wast a worthy sacrifice/ when thou didst offer thy pure soul to God;/ wherefore Christ has glorified thee,/ and through thee pours forth graces/ abundantly on all the faithful,/ for He is the merciful Lover of mankind.
Troparion of St. Illtyd Tone 6
O wise Illtyd, thou wast noble by birth and noble in mind/ and didst train many saints in the way of holiness./ Pray to Christ our God to raise up saints in our days/ to His glory and for our salvation.
Kontakion of St. Cyriaca Tone 2
The Martyr of Christ now calls us together to celebrate her contests and struggles./ For she vanquished the invisible enemy/ and mastered both her mind and her passions .
