Synaxis of All Saints of Alaska - Troparion & Kontakion

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.
