Athanasios (Tom) Felactu was born in Torrance, CA and was an active member of Saint Katherine's Greek Orthodox Church in Redondo Beach. He graduated from California Polytechnic San Luis Obispo and joined the family business where he became a successful executive recruiter. Soon after college, Tom returned to his home parish where he served the church as youth director and parish council member. In 2008, he married Constantina, and they became the proud parents of Odysseas and Sophia. The Felactu family moved to Brookline, MA in 2012 and Tom graduated from Holy Cross Theological School with a Master of Divinity in 2016. That summer, the Felactus moved to Belmont to serve at Holy Cross, and Tom was ordained to the Deaconate at his home parish of Saint Katherine’s in April, 2017 and then to the Priesthood at his new parish of Holy Cross in May, 2017. Father Athanasios, Presbytera Tina, Ody and Sophia are happy to be part of the Holy Cross family.
