Saints Arkadios and Nestor, Bishops of Tremithus in Cyprus

Sts. Arkadios and Nestor of Tremithus (Feast Day - March 7)


The two shepherds of Tremithus are summoned,
To leap on the beautiful grass of Eden.

Saints Arkadios and Nestor lived in the first centuries of the Church of Cyprus. As Bishops of Tremithus living in separate times, they led many pagans away from the worship of idols and baptized them Christians. Having shepherded the flock of Christ faithfully and diligently, they reposed in peace.
