The Kontakion for today (New Calendar) reads as follows:

When in spirit thou didst pass through the heavenly gates as a disciple of him who attained to the third heaven,/ thou wast enriched with ineffable knowledge and didst enlighten those in darkness of ignorance./ Therefore we cry: Rejoice, O Father Dionysius.


what's the meaning of "the third heaven"?

That would be a reference to St. Paul's being caught up to the third heaven. 2 Corinthians 12:2-4
