The Holy Martyrs Innas, Nirras and Pinnas
(January 20)

They are regarded as the first Slav martyrs recorded in history and they lived to a great age in Scythia, being disciples of the holy Apostle Andrew. They suffered for the Faith at the hands of their pagan neighbours on the other side of the Danube, near Varna. Bound and left on the ice, they froze to death and entered into rest in the Lord.
