Our Clergy
Priest Esteban Vázquez
Rector of the Parish

Father Esteban was born and raised in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. He became an Orthodox Christian in 2001, and served in the Church as a cantor and rubricist for many years after that. Following variegated undergraduate studies in the classical languages, literature, and theology, he eventually earned a master's degree in theology, and is now a PhD student in New Testament and Early Christianity at Loyola University Chicago. Ordained to the diaconate in 2015 and to the presbyterate in 2016, he has served at St Panteleimon Church since December 1, 2017. Additionally, he heads up Parádosis, the Spanish Language Division of Ancient Faith Ministries. He is married to Popadia Amanda, and they have two children.

Protodeacon Robert Northrup
Deacon of the Parish

Protodeacon Robert, a Southwest Chicago original, married his high school sweetheart here at St Panteleimon, her home parish, in 1975. He became an Orthodox Christian in 1986, and went on to faithfully serve the parish in many capacities over the years. He was a part of the very first class of the Diaconal Vocations Program in our Diocese of the Midwest, and was ordained to the diaconate in 1998. For his excellent service in holy orders, he was raised to the rank of Protodeacon in 2008, and awarded the kamilavka in 2019. He and Matushka Sue have four children and five grandchildren.
