Today, we proudly celebrate the 500th anniversary of the founding of our village Agios Georgios Sikousis. We are proud of what a handful of disparate, poor, farmers from the surrounding villages, built when called by monk Sofronios Sepsis to populate the abandoned monastery of Agios Georgios.
In the last five-hundred years, with the sweat of their labor and the love in their heart, our ancestors tamed the wild mountains of central Chios to create a village we are proud to call our ancestral home.
The St. George Sikousis Syllogos of America, join the Agiorgousoi around the globe to salute the accomplishments of the past 500 years and wish our beloved village “may your next 500 years be full of peace and prosperity.”
Here’s to the next 500 years!
