MAY 21: COMMEMORATION OF CONSTANTINE & HELEN – EQUALS TO THE APOSTLES

On May 21st we commemorate Constantine & Helen Equals to the Apostles. St. Constantine is the first Roman Emperor to support Christianity as a replacement for Roman paganism and is attributed for the conversion of the Roman Empire to Christianity.  St. Helena, his mother, built many Holy Christian temples and monasteries among which the most important are: the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem and the Church of Nazareth.
