Father Christodoulos Margellos is a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota.  

Father Christodoulos is a young, dynamic clergyman, full of energy and motivation.

He graduated from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in May of 2006. Later that year, upon ordination, he was assigned as the associate pastor of Saints Constantine and Helen in Merrillville, Indiana, serving for almost five years.

Most recently, Father has been serving as the Proistameno of Saint George in Rock Island, Illinois. He has also been an integral part of our Metropolis Youth Camp, “Fanari”, serving as part of the Orthodox Life Counseling Staff.

Father Chris was reassigned to our parish of St. Nicholas on August 16, 2015,  where he continues his work in the Lord’s vineyard. 

On December 6, 2016, after celebrating the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy for the Feast Day of St. Nicholas, His Eminence, Metropolitan Iakovos of the Metropolis of Chicago, elevated Father Christodoulos to the Offikia of Archimandrite.
