Youth Director – Mr. Peter Savas

Peter was raised in the west suburbs of Chicago. He attended Holy Apostles and was shaped by the relationships he built and the experiences he had in the parish ministry programs such as the Altar, GOYA, and Adventure Theater. Peter graduated Magna Cum Laude with degrees in both Theology and Psychology from Loyola University Chicago. While in college, he worked for Campus Ministry as well as the Youth Office of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago. Outside of work, he spent most of his time in college serving ministries such as Labre Homeless Ministry, Orthodox Christian Fellowship, Fanari Camp, and youth programs of local parishes including Saints Peter and Paul. Since his first retreat, the community of Saints Peter and Paul has welcomed him into their family and now he is working full-time as the Youth Director. Peter feels blessed to be a part of such a beautiful, Christ-centered community.
