SAINT PETER AND SAINT PAUL

Apostles
d. 64

Early on in the church year, Peter and Paul, the two greatest leaders of the early Church, are commemorated separately-- Peter on January 18, for his confession of Jesus as the Messiah, and Paul on January 25, for his conversion. They are commemorated together on June 29 in observance of the tradition of the Church that they both died as martyrs in Rome during the persecution under Nero, on this date in 64. In 2015, we are celebrating this feast day no only on June 29, but also on Sunday, June 28.

Collect:

Almighty God, whose blessed apostles Peter and Paul glorified thee by their martyrdom: Grant that thy Church, instructed by their teaching and example, and knit together in unity by thy Spirit, may ever stand firm upon the one foundation, which is Jesus Christ our Lord; who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
