Epafrodito pamoja na Sosthene, Apolo, Kefa na Kaisari.

Epafrodito (kwa Kigiriki: Ἐπαφρόδιτος, yaani "Mpendevu"[1][2]) ni Mkristo wa karne ya 1 anayetajwa katika Agano Jipya[3] kama mjumbe wa kanisa la Filipi kwa kumhudumia Mtume Paulo kifungoni (Fil 2:25-30; pia 4:18). Akiwa huko aliugua, hivyo Paulo alipoona amepona akamrudisha Filipi kwa shukrani.

Inasemekana baadaye akawa askofu.

Tangu kale anaheshimiwa na Wakatoliki na Waorthodoksi kama mtakatifu.

Sikukuu yake huadhimishwa tarehe 22 Machi au 30 Machi[4].
