The Saint Athanasius the Great Parish Council is pleased to announce, with the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios, the assignment of our new Proistaminos Father Robert J. Archon. Fr. Bob will begin his ministry at Saint Athanasius the Great on September 1, 2020.
Fr. Bob has been a priest for over three decades. He grew up in Flushing, Queens, NY until the age of 15 when, subsequent to his father’s retirement from the Navy, he moved to Fresno, CA. He graduated from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in 1986 and served as an Assistant Priest at Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Flushing, Queens, NY. He then served the Annunciation Church in Elkins Park, PA and finally Saint Mark Church in Boca Raton, FL. Prior to arriving at Saint Athanasius the Great he served at Saint Nicholas in Portsmouth, NH. While at Saint Nicholas he served as the Chaplain for both the Fire and Police Departments in Portsmouth, NH.
Fr. Bob and his wife Caliope have two daughters, Nicole and Erin. Their youngest daughter Erin is studying at Keene State College in New Hampshire and their oldest daughter Nicole graduated from Florida State University in Boca Raton. Fr. Bob has completed a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at LaSalle University, and recently successfully defended his doctoral dissertation and was awarded his Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership in Non-for-Profit Organizations from Capella University. He is currently serving as Adjunct Professor of Parish Administration and Leadership at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology.
Please join us in welcoming Fr. Bob to our beloved Saint Athanasius the Great parish family and embrace him with love, kindness, and prayers.
