Parish Priest

Fr. Vasile Tudora is native of Romania and moved to Texas in 2001. He has pursued first Medical Studies at the "Carol Davila" University of Medicine in Bucharest.  Later on he responded to his call for priesthood and also pursued theological studies at the "Sfanta Mucenita Filoteea" Theological School in Pitesti, Romania.

In February 2004 he was ordained to the Holy Diaconate by His Grace Bishop Irineu from the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America (ROEA), under OCA jurisdiction, and asssigned to the St. Mary's Orthodox Church in Colleyville. In November 2005 he was ordained to the Holy Priesthood by His Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel (ROEA).

In July 2007 he enters the Greek Archdiocese of America under the omophorion of Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver and is assigned as Proistamenos (presiding priest) at the Church of St. John the Baptist in Euless, Texas.

Due to his dual background, Fr. Vasile has a strong interest in Christian Bioethics and writes articles on contemporary moral issues.

He is married with Presvytera Mirela Tudora and they enjoy every minute of the time they spend with their 5 children. 

Beside the Church and the family Fr. Vasile also longs for the great outdoors and experiments with digital photography.
