Troparia and kontakia for June 30

Synaxis of the Saints of North America

Troparion — Tone 8

As the bountiful harvest of Your sowing of salvation, / The lands of North America offer to You, O Lord, all the saints who have shone in them. / By their prayers keep the Church and our land in abiding peace / Through the Theotokos, O most Merciful One.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Today the choir of Saints who were pleasing to God in the lands of North America / Now stands before us in the Church and invisibly prays to God for us. / With them the angels glorify Him, / And all the saints of the Church of Christ keep festival with them; / And together they all pray for us to the Pre-Eternal God.

Today Christ the Rock glorifies with highest honor / Peter, the rock of faith and leader of the apostles, / together with Paul and the company of the twelve, / whose memory we celebrate with eagerness of faith, / giving glory to the One Who gave glory to them.
