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.
