St. Anthony’s Proposal to Salt River Project (SRP) (Fr. Ilarion Skyriotis, 2011)

Fr. Ilarion came to St. Anthony’s Monastery in 1997 as a novice. Before his tonsure, he was George Skyriotis, the accountant from Bethlehem, PA. Geronda Ephraim tonsured him a rassaphore in 1998, giving him the name Ilarion (Hilarion). He slowly worked his way up the ladder and landed himself an office position in the monastery that also involved accounting. The former treasurer of St. Anthony’s Monastery, Fr. Silouanos, returned to the world. On March 21st, 2008, Fr. Ilarion was officially appointed the new Treasurer of St. Anthony’s Monastery.

His niece, Lauren Elizabeth Burkhardt, died unexpectedly at 20 years of age, in October, 2013, her burial was private. His brother Panagiotis (Peter) died at age 46 in a tractor trailer crash in November 2014 and was buried at Holy Protection Monastery.
