Rev. Father Evan Evangelidis
Fr. Evan is a first generation Greek-American, whose family emigrated from Greece and settled in Worcester, Massachusetts when he was four years old. Like most immigrants, his family came to this country with a strong desire to work and build a better future for themselves and their children. It is his faith and love in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ along with the unwavering love, support and sacrifice of family that have shaped Father Evan as a person and as a Greek Orthodox Christian. His father fell asleep in the Lord in 1995 and his mother, Chrysanthi, currently lives in Worcester, MA. His sister, Dr. Vicky Evangelidis, is married to Dr. Stanley Sakellson and they live in Westchester County New York. Last but certainly not least, Father Evan is the proud parent of a highly intelligent, energetic, beautiful and precocious young lady named Demetra Alexandra who constantly keeps him busy and always smiling!
