Father Michael Manos grew up at the parish of Assumption of the Theotokos in St. Clair Shores. He completed his undergraduate work at Ohio State University, with a double-major in Music and in Modern Greek Studies. In 2013, he married his high-school sweetheart, Kerri Lynn Marowske.
They spent three years together in Boston, and, while Fr. Michael completed his MDiv at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, Kerri taught 3rd grade at a Catholic school in a Boston suburb. Fr. Michael was ordained to the Diaconate on August 15th, the feastday of the Panagia, and to the Priesthood on Sunday, September 27.
