OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER
FR. TASSO THEODOROPOULOS
Fr. Anastasios grew up in the north suburbs of Chicago. Though raised in the Orthodox Faith, it was not until his college years at the University of Illinois that he developed a passion for the Church and deep desire to know Christ. Upon graduation, Fr. Anastasios enrolled at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Seminary, where he was able to indulge his desire to enrich and enliven his life in the Orthodox faith. Upon graduation in 2014, he married his wife Presvytera Elizabeth, and they moved to St. Louis, Missouri to serve Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, where he was ordained to the Holy Priesthood in May of 2015. He served in St. Louis for 5 years as an associate pastor before being transferred to Peoria in September of 2019.
Fr. Anastasios is the spiritual advisor of the YAL Chicago Board. He has a deep passion for sharing the Orthodox faith, and works to inspire the faithful Orthodox Christians of Joliet to live their faith, and share it with our friends and neighbors. He welcomes all who seek God to come and see how Orthodox Christians have encountered Christ for centuries.
