Our Clergy and Staff

Father George Ioannou strives to bring the Orthodox Church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ alive for our parish community and all those we encounter. We invite you to learn more about our Hierarchs and local pastoral team.

Our Presiding Priest: Father George Ioannou


Fr. George has been with us for the past two years, serving alternately with Fr. Michael Petrides.  Upon Fr. Michael’s retirement in June of 2022, Fr. George became our full-time priest.

He attended and graduated from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology with a Masters degree in Divinity in 2005. He was ordained to the priesthood in April of 2005, having spent a year as a deacon.

Fr. George and his presbytera Lisa married in 1991 and have three children, Anastasia, Theodore, and Alexander.

His primary goal is to continue to serve this parish, prayerfully guiding the community towards salvation in our Lord and God, Jesus Christ.

Our Team

Father, Peter and Garfield




Though we are a small congregation, we are blessed to have too many people to name who assist Father George at the altar, or do things behind the scenes, to ensure that the Church and our services are ready for each event.

Featured are Sub-Deacon Peter Kikareas and Garfield Aucoin who sings in our choir, and also provides chanting services when needed.

They, among others, are vital, and we are thankful to God that they all devote so much time and energy to our Church.
