832 – Father Simeon de la Jara

When, in 1974, the entire monastery relocated to Agios Grigorios (St Gregory) on Mount Athos, Simeon followed, living at the Agios Grigorios Monastery until 1987. He subsequently became a hermit, moving to the old hermits cell of Timios Stavros near the Stavronikita monastery, where he built a new dependency and formed a complex.

    Father Simeon was the first ever Priestmonk I met from the Holy Mountain while I was still a child in Australia. Truly a great man. I always try and visit his hermitage every time I pass it on the way to Stavronikita.

    Dear Sir;

    I am a philatelist and I would like to collect the stamps of Aghion Oros, right from the beginning. I have heard that the first issues of Mt. Athos independent postal stamps began in 2008.
    Could you tell me how can buy these stamps [including this year’s issues].
    Thank you and looking forward to hear from you.
    Hadrian Liem.
