Agios Georgios

The popular Saint George the Great Martyr and Trophy-bearer was born around 275 AD in Cappadocia, to Christian parents. His father, in fact, died a martyr for Christ when George was ten years old.  At the age of 18 he joined the Roman army where he won over his superiors and was quickly promoted to higher positions.

When Emperor Diocletian gathered all the officials to undertake the exterminating struggle against the Christians, George, being among them, confesses that he is a Christian. Enraged, the emperor orders his beheading after cruel torture.

Saint George is considered the patron saint of the Infantry and the Army. His memory is celebrated on April 23. However, if this date falls during Lent (before Easter), then the memory of the Saint is celebrated the day after Easter (Easter Monday).
