Commemorated November 28

Troparion of St. Stephen the New - Tone 4

Trained in asceticism on the mountain, with the weapon of the Cross you destroyed the spiritual assaults of the hostile powers, all-blessed one; Again you bravely prepared for combat and slew Copronymus with the sword of faith; for both struggles you have been crowned by God, monk-martyr Stephen of eternal memory.

Kontakion of St. Stephen the New - Tone 8

Lovers of the feasts, from the heart with hymns let us praise in faith godlike Stephen the lover of the Trinity, for he honored the fair icon icon of the Master and of His Mother. Now let us rejoice together and cry out to him with love: "Rejoice, ever glorious Father."
