The Church celebrates the memory of the martyrdom of these two saints on the 5th of Abib, which is the 12th of July.This feast is called in our Church by the name of "the feast of the apostles". Its date is unchanged in every year.
The Church venerates these two apostles very profoundly; and
praises them and honors them exceedingly; especially in the prayer of "the partition" or "the division" which pertains to the fast of the apostles and to the feast of the apostles, which we pray during the holy mass.
H.H. Pope Shenouda III, Coptic Pope of the Patriarch of the See of St. Mark
