Fortunatus was one of the Seventy Disciples, commemorated by the Church on June 15 with Achaicus and Stephen and on January 4 with all of the Seventy.

Hymns[edit]

Troparion (Tone 3) [1]

Holy apostle Fortunatus of the Seventy;
Entreat the merciful;
To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion (Tone 4 )

The Church ever sees you as a shining star, O apostle Fortunatus,
Your miracles have manifested great enlightenment.
Therefore we cry out to Christ:
"Save those who with faith honor Your apostle, O Most Merciful One."
