November 18 (civil) / October 5 (church)
Let us the faithful honour these two betrothed athletes, divine Galaction and modest Epistema./ Their ascetic labours blossomed in martyrdom: therefore we cry to them:/ Glory to Him Who has strengthened you; glory to Him Who has crowned you;/ glory to Him Who through you works healings for all.

The Bible tells us that in God's time, the day begins with evening ("The evening and the morning were the first day"), so the services of the Church begin in the evening with Vespers, a service that in some ways "closes" the day that is past and in other ways begins the new day. The next morning, the services of the Third Hour and the Sixth Hour continue the services of that day, followed immediately by the Divine Liturgy.
