Father Andreas Konanos was born in Munich in 1970. He comes from Ioannina, lived in Munich and from 1977 in Athens. He finished high school in the classical High School and studied Theology in Athens. Blessed Archbishop Christodoulos ordained him deacon in 1999 and Elder Archimandrite in 2000. He took over the parish of student meetings, vigils, speeches and lectures at parents' schools and spiritual centres of the Archdiocese of Athens.
In 2006 he began the broadcast "Unseen Crossings" at the Radio Station Church of Piraeus. This broadcast led to invitations to speak in many cities in Greece, Cyprus and America. His contact with Jerusalem, Mount Athos and Elders inside and outside Mount Athos are a source of strength in his life.
