The Feast of the Apostles

Written by H.H. Pope Shenouda.

pope shenouda iii
The Church celebrates the memory of the martyrdom of St. Peter and St. Paul on the 5th of Abib, which is the 12th of July. This feast is called in our Church by the name of “The Feast of the Apostles”. Its date is unchanged every year.

The Church venerates these two apostles very profoundly; and raises them and honors them exceedingly; especially in the prayer of the partition” or “the division” which pertains to the fast of the apostles and to the feast of the apostles, which we pray during the holy mass.
