Carpus of Beroea of the Seventy Disciples is commemorated by the Church on May 26 with Alphaeus, and on January 4 with the Seventy.

In his second Epistle to Timothy, Paul requests, "The phelonion that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books." Carpus was bishop of Beroea (or Verria) in Macedonia.

Hymns[edit]

Troparion (Tone 3) [1]

O holy Apostle Carpus,
Entreat the merciful God,
To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion (Tone 4)

The Church possesses You as a shining star,
O Holy Apostle Carpus,
And is illumined by the multitude of your miracles.
Save those who honor in faith
Your holy memory.
