St. Innocent, Enlightener of Alaska and All America

Troparion, Tone 4:

O Holy Father Innocent,
in obedience to the will of God you accepted dangers and tribulations,
bringing many peoples to the knowledge of truth.
You showed us the path;
now by your prayers help lead us into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Another Troparion, Tone 2:

You evangelized the Northern people of America and Asia,
proclaiming the Gospel of Christ to the natives in their own tongues,
O Holy Hierarch Father Innocent, Enlightener of Alaska and All America,
whose ways were ordered by the Lord.
Pray to Him for the salvation of our souls, in His Heavenly Kingdom.

Kontakion, Tone 2:

A true celebration of the Providence and Grace of God is your life,
O Holy Father Innocent, Apostle to our land. For in hardships and dangers toiling for the Gospel’s sake,
You were preserved unharmed and often-delivered,
While from obscurity you were highly exalted as an example to the faithful everywhere,
That truly the Lord guides a man in the way he should go.
