O Almighty Lord, Thou has made the memory of those who suffered martyrdom for Thee to shine most brightly. Thou didst strengthen them to emulate Thy sufferings and they bravely conquered the power of the devil, and therefore received the grace of healing.
By their prayers, O Christ God, grant peace to Thy people.

Troparion to the Passion-Bearer Prince Kenelm
in Tone 2
O passion-bearer and follower of Christ; Young and guileless Kenelm. When thou wast murdered by thine own kin, The secret iniquity could not be hidden. A miracle revealed the truth to all the world, And justice was restored. Pray to Christ our God To save our souls.
Holy Saints and Martyrs, pray to God for us
Troparion to the Holy and Great Martyr Marina
in Tone 5
O glorious Marina betrothed to God the Word,Thou didst abandon all things earthly And contest victoriously as a virgin.For thou didst trample on the invisible foe when he appeared, O holy trophy-bearer,And thou dost now bestow gifts of healing on the world.
The Grimsby Orthodox Christian Community is dedicated to St. Marina and St. Kenelm.
They were young Christians from the time when there was one universal Christian Church;
St Marina from the early centuries of the Eastern Church, and St Kenelm from the treasury of British saints, before the split between East and West.
They suffered violent deaths and are seen as sources of inspiration and help for
Their Feast Day is on July 17th.
