HCHC President George M. Cantonis has announced the appointment of Fr. Patrick O’Rourke as his Chief of Staff, effective August 1. In that role he will assist in overseeing and monitoring operations and helping to execute new presidential initiatives. On August 3, Fr. O’Rourke received the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, Chairman of HCHC’s Board of Trustees, at the Archdiocese.

Fr. O’Rourke received his Master of Divinity degree magna cum laude from Holy Cross in 2016. He was ordained a deacon on Palm Sunday that spring by His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas of Detroit and was ordained a priest by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, Geron of America, that fall. He has served three parishes and also creates graphic art for Orthodox publications, both print and digital.

Fr. O’Rourke is married to the former Jessica Tindle, a 2014 graduate of Hellenic College. The O’Rourkes are blessed with two young sons, Jacob and Lucas, and delighted to return to their alma mater and be part of the HCHC community once again.
