St. Pelagia

Commemorated May 4

Troparion of St. Pelagia, Tone 3

Thou didst abandon dark ignorance through knowledge of the Faith, O Pelagia, fair virgin of Christ. Thou wast refreshed by His dew and didst finish thy contest by fire. O glorious Martyr, entreat Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.

Kontakion of St. Pelagia, Tone 2

Abandoning thy mortal betrothed to be wedded to the Immortal, thou didst offer thy dowry of chastity and contest. Wherefore, O Pelagia, we acclaim thee.
