Holy Martyrs Akepsios and Haifal

Commemorated December 11

The Holy Martyrs Akepsios and Haifal hailed from Persia.

Akepsios was a pagan priest in the city of Arbel. Having received healing through the prayers of a Christian bishop, he was converted to the faith in Christ and boldly confessed it. For this they threw Saint Akepsios into prison.

Soon imprisoned with him was Saint Haifal, a deacon of the Arbel Church. They brought the martyrs before the ruler, where they again confessed their faith and were beheaded.
