During the period 1971-1984, the following priests served our parish as pastoral assistants at the direction of the diocesan bishop, but without a formal archdiocesan appointment (diorismos):

  • Rev. George Economou
  • Rev. George Tsoumas
  • Rev. Kallistos Samaras
  • Rev. Stanley Markantonis


In 1926, the political struggle in Greece between the royalists and the republicans, as well as the ecclesiastical controversy over the old and new church calendars, led to a split in the community. A dissident group of republican/new calendarists established a new parish dedicated to the Holy Transfiguration. The priests who served this parish were:

  • Rev. Astergios Papastergiou (1926)
  • Rev. Efstathios Georgiades (1927)
  • Rev. Artemios Artemiou (1928)
  • Rev. Gregory Melonadakis (1929)
  • Rev. George Economides (1930)

In 1930, the parishes voted to re-unite, and the Rev. George Economides, then pastor of Holy Transfiguration, was appointed pastor of the newly unified parish of St. Vasilios.
