200 Years of Modern Greatness: Happy Birthday to all of Hellas

200 Years of Modern Greatness: Happy Birthday to all of Hellas March 25, 2021

Two hundred years ago brave men stood for liberty against a cruel empire. They could not fail for  the diaspora came to help them. Greek philosophy, science, religion had done so much to create the world that when she needed us, we came.

Children born in other lands returned and paid the debt they owed.

Hellenic culture sent out ideas that created Athens, Alexandria, Antioch, Aksum-  classical culture fused with vibrant Christian Orthodoxy that made a commonwealth of nations (Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, Russian) and that endured defeat of the motherland in 1453. The cultural ideas of Hellenic education had been spread to the west of the world and helped create modern Britain and France. In the War of Independence all these children, natural and adopted, of Christian Hellas came home to help bring liberty.

This is the tribute our College and School pays to Hellas on the Bicentennial of her modern independence.

God save Greece!
