Troparion & Kontakion
Troparion — Tone 4
You were a firm pillar and an undaunted guardian of sacred tradition, O Nicetas; / you were adorned with holy dispassion and became an illustrious confessor of the Faith. / Accept the prayers of those who cry to you, / interceding for them with Christ our God.
Kontakion — Tone 2
You acquired a heavenly mind and life, / shining as brightly as the sun in the splendor of your deeds! / Father Nicetas, you enlighten those in the darkness of life guiding them all to God. / Pray without ceasing for us all!
