Holy New Martyrs of Alaska September 24
Troparion — Tone 4
Today Alaska rejoices and America celebrates, For the new world has been sanctified by martyrdom Kodiak echoes with songs of thanksgiving, Iliamna and Kenai observe the festival of faith. The Apostle and martyr Juvenaly is glorified, And Peter the Aleut is exalted by his voluntary sacrifice, In their devotion and love for the Lord They willingly endured persecution and death for the Truth, Now in the Kingdom of Heaven they intercede for our souls!
Kontakion — Tone 4
Today Valaam joins Alaska In celebrating this joyous feast, As her spiritual son Juvenaly Embraces the new martyr Peter with love. Together they suffered for the Lord in America And united the old world with the new by their voluntary sacrifice. Now forever they stand before the King of glory and intercede for our souls.
The local Church is the living Body of Christ (1Cor 12:27) that serves to live, uphold, and preach the Faith as delivered by Christ, taught by the Apostles, and preserved in the Holy Scriptures and Tradition of the Holy Orthodox Church. We accomplish this mission by
• participation in liturgical worship, • partaking of the spiritual life and sacraments of the Church, • sharing in Christian fellowship as a eucharistic community, • providing for education of the Faith, • engaging in philanthropy, • being wise stewards of our time, talents, and properties and, • being Christ’s ambassadors (2Cor 5:20) to the world in manifesting His love, presence, and preaching.
