Apostle Hermes of the Seventy

Saint Hermes was among the Seventy Apostles chosen and sent forth to preach by Christ (Luke 10:1).

St Hermes was bishop in Dalmatia (there is another Apostle of the Seventy by the name of Hermas, who was bishop in the Thracian city of Philippopolis).

Because of his intrepid service to Christ, St Hermes underwent fierce sufferings and was found worthy of a martyr’s crown.
