Bishop Aimilianos was born in Greece and came to the United States in 1930. He pursued graduate studies at the Episcopal theological seminary in Philadelphia.
Elected titular bishop of Harioupolis in 1960, he was consecrated to the episcopacy on November 6, 1960, at St. Sophia's. He oversaw the archdiocesan districts of Chicago and Charlotte, respectively, until his retirement in 1973.
Bishop Aimilianos died in 1992. In 1998, the Washington City Council named a park across from St. Sophia's Cathedral in the Bishop's honor. The park is maintained by the Bishop Laloussis Foundation of Bethesda, Maryland.
