09/11/15: His All-Holiness visits the Island of Chios

From September 11-14, 2015, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew traveled to the Island of Chios to unveil a statue of his predecessor, Ecumenical Patriarch Constantine V (1897-1901), who was born on the island of Chios, and specifically in the remote village of Vessa. His All-Holiness visited the village square for the ceremony and also had the opportunity to pray in the historic Cathedral of Saint Victores. Several Archons, many of whom originated from this island, traveled from the United States for this event and received the blessings of His All-Holiness and His Eminence Metropolitan Markos.
