Troparion — Tone 3

You were pillars of the Church, O servants of godliness, / and you humbled the proud worshippers of fire. / Much afflicted hierarch Akepsimas, Joseph the presbyter and Aethalas the deacon, / pray to Christ our God / to grant us His great mercy.

Kontakion — Tone 2

You celebrated the mysteries blamelessly, O wise ones, / and became acceptable sacrifices, O divinely blessed ones! / You gloriously drank of the cup of Christ, Holy Akepsimas, Joseph, and Aithalas / and are praying unceasingly to Christ God for us all.
