The Church commemorates Hieromartyr Dorotheus, Bishop of Tyre, Martyr Nicander and New Martyr Mark, Saint Plutarch, Archbishop of Cyprus, who according to the Chronicle of Leontios Machairas is one of the saints of the Church of Cyprus.
When the persecution of Christians broke out during the reign of Diocletian, his flock persuaded him to get away in order not to lose his spiritual hierarch. He retired to Dyssos, a city in Thrace, where he led an ascetic life until this wave of persecutions would come to an end.
The idolaters, who were protegees of Emperor Julian, arrested Dorotheus. After having tormented him mercilessly, they killed him in AD 362, thus winning the wreath of martyrdom.
Nowadays, the work of St. Dorotheus is preserved, which deals with the wider circle of 70 disciples of Jesus.
