Commemorated on July 30 and January 4th
The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Silas is numbered among the Seventy Apostles. St. Silas went with Sts. Paul and Barnabas from Antioch to Jerusalem to settle the dispute among believers there about circumcision. He was imprisoned with Paul (Acts 16:16-39). Following this he went traveling with St. Paul through Asia and Macedonia and was eventually made Bishop of Corinth. He reposed peacefully in the Lord.
