Demetrios Katos, New President of HCHC

December 7, 2023

BOSTON – Demetrios S. Katos is the new president of Hellenic College and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. The National Herald had previously announced his appointment in its publication on November 26, 2023. We had written that “Demetrios Katos, former Dean and professor at Hellenic College, may become the new president of Hellenic College – Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, MA according to information gathered so far by The National Herald.”

Katos’ appointment took place on the evening of Thursday, November 30, during the meeting of the School’s Board of Trustees under the chairmanship of Archbishop Elpidophoros.

In the secret ballot, Katos, received the required 29 votes, while three voted against or abstained. Only two Metropolitans participated, Gerasimos of San Francisco and Nathanael of Chicago.

It was stated to The National Herald that Katos’s election will be legally ratified when his contract details are decided. For this purpose, a committee will be appointed to take care of the contract, and when an agreement is reached, Katos will assume his duties from the beginning of the new year.

Katos is currently the Director of Giving and College Initiatives at the College of Social Sciences and Humanities at Northeastern University in Boston. He succeeds George Cantonis, who resigned for health reasons.

At the same time, the Board of Trustees also appointed a new dean of the Theological School, Fr. Eugen Pentiuc, who succeeds Fr. George Parsenios, who also resigned for health reasons.
